Definition of Caregivers
Caregivers provide help to another person in need. The person receiving care may be an adult - often a parent or a spouse - or a child with special medical needs. Some caregivers are family members. Others are paid. They do a lot of things.

There is no illness that is not exacerbated by stress.
― Allan Lokos

Definition of Caregivers

Caregiving is hard, and caregivers of chronically ill people often feel stress. They are "on call" 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you're caring for someone with mental problems like Alzheimer's disease it can be especially difficult. Support groups can help. (Source: medlineplus.gov)

“Caregiving has pushed me to do things outside of my comfort zone, and I’ve embraced that nurturing part of myself that I didn’t know I had.”

Mary lives with late stage Alzheimer’s so Patty spends about 9 hours daily to assist her with things like bathing, cooking, dressing, and going to the doctor’s office for appointments. Patty takes Mary to an Adult Day Center three days a week through the Arizona Caregiver Coalition so that she can enjoy respite. Mary loved it at the center and made friends. It became something that she truly looked forward to every week.
