As the population ages, it is increasingly likely one will find himself or herself in the role of caregiver of someone elderly, chronically ill, or with a disability. Although it is a role many are unprepared for, it is one that is assumed out of love, necessity, or a combination of both.

You will learn about the importance of respite care, stressors faced by caregivers, getting through the daily routine of caregiving, and how others can help caregivers. She shares how to handle the inevitable difficult decisions caregivers must make. Hill also explains how and why you need to depend on God, the ultimate caregiver.

A list of resources is provided for those who need additional assistance in a specific area.
