There comes a time in our lives when we may have to take time out to care for a family member who has become dependent on assistance for various health reasons. Caregivers transport their loved ones to doctor’s offices, schedule medical appointments, accompany them on grocery shopping trips and assist them in so many ways. Family members who perform these very necessary duties with devotion and care are to be admired.
However, it is so very important that some respite time is necessary for the caregiver, enabling them to continue with patience and dedication to those who are in need of assistance. Perhaps the caregiver requires a visit to the barber or beauty salon or just wants to enjoy lunch with a friend. Keeping up the energy level and good spirits is important.
