COPING WITH GUILT IS PART OF A CAREGIVER’S RESPONSIBILITY
If you’ve become a caregiver for an ailing family member, you may be confronted by a variety of unwelcome, painful and often conflicting feelings. Sadness, anger and guilt are some of the most common but least talked about experiences – even among professional caregivers. You may be saddened by the increasing frailty and struggle caused by illness and aging. The thought of a future without this person in your life may be so unbearable that you become angry with them.
