Caregiver’s Much Needed Rest

Caregiving is hard work.  I saw it first hand when I was growing up with my older brother Mike. He is autistic, low functioning and nonverbal. He needed help with everything and had to be watched constantly. If you weren’t careful, he would take the food from your plate.

However, there is a difference between taking caring of someone who has never been able to care for himself and caring for a vital person who suddenly is in great jeopardy and becomes helpless.

In all cases, there is a point of exhaustion that each caregiver experiences.

The portrait below represents a caregiver getting a much needed rest.
