Caring for your parents is honorable but also challenging. You want to do all you can to make things easier for them, so you put all your energy and effort into trying to meet their every need. When you do this, you often do it at the expense of your own mental and physical well-being, and this can have dire consequences.
Family caregivers often neglect their health as well as sacrifice other meaningful relationships and interests in their life because they don't have an effective plan which takes in account their needs and the needs of their loved one.
Listen to this podcast episode and gain insight into developing a healthy caregiving plan. See how this quote, "If you don't have a plan, any road will lead you there and you will achieve goals you didn't set." is a depiction of what can happen in caregiving when you are not purposeful about including YOU in the caregiving plan.
