The emotional impact of caregiving

Caregiving is an emotionally demanding job. Looking out for someone’s health and wellbeing takes time, energy, and a lot of compassion. There are going to be times where you feel frustrated, angry, or even ambivalent. For all the challenges of caregiving, there are many emotionally uplifting moments as well.
