In my previous blog, I said “I believe there is an answer that helps many” deal with the stress, exhaustion, and health impact of caregiving.

From my perspective, Advocate is the primary role while Caregiver is the secondary role.
Many caregivers are stressed, exhausted, depressed. What if, in their search for answers, they found hope in a simple perspective change?
