Tips for Caregivers

According to Statistics Canada, in 2018 an estimated 25 percent of the population provided some form of long-term caregiving to a loved one. As those with illness face multiple losses and grief, and adjustments to a different life routine, so do caregivers. Caregivers may face losses such as the loss of a job, broken or challenging relationships, and having to learn to adjust to new caregiving routines and skills. Caregiving is undoubtedly one of the most rewarding, yet demanding, jobs a person will ever have. Listen to this week's podcast for some tips to help ease the burden of caregiving.

Guilt and Caregiving

At Hospice Quinte we meet, and talk to, a lot of people who have become family caregivers for loved ones who are facing a terminal illness. We hear a lot of stories and many of these involve emotions such as sadness, hope, exhaustion, happiness, grace, despair, longing, love, and even anger. Yet, perhaps, the common emotion we hear about is guilt.
