    I found this article both insightful and relevant given my “caregiving” responsibilities with my late fiancé. You’ve done a good job in pointing to a lot of variables!

      Thanks James; it means a lot coming from you with a deep personal experience.

    Much of the caregiver distress is due to lack of information and effective communication with the healthcare system, social and community services. Caregivers are a shadow support system that in many cases are the ones with the most complete understanding of a patient’s challenges and needs. Let’s work toward making their job easier.
