What do caregivers worry about?

Here’s a brief - but typical - list of things that make them lose sleep.

  1. I worry about running out of money.
  2. I worry about losing my care receiver.
  3. I worry about making a critical caregiving mistake.
  4. I worry about the effect caregiving is having on my life.
  5. I worry about criticism from siblings or other family members.
  6. I worry about being able to provide the care my care receiver really needs.

These are heavy-duty worries for anyone, let alone caregivers!
