Whether your loved one is very young or very old or very in-between; dealing with a physical, emotional, or mental illness; or suffering a short-term or a fatal disease; you as a primary or secondary caregiver devote your life to providing compassionate care for someone you love to the best of your ability. You probably haven't received any training for this tremendous responsibility. You've learned along the way as I did. No doubt you have made mistakes, as I did. You have done things the hard way, as I did. And you haven't had enough time to tap into the many available resources from which all caregivers can learn, as I did not.
