Providing care for a family member with chronic illness becomes increasingly more demanding in time and patience as the illness progresses. It is wise to start preparing early in strengthening resiliency to prepare for what lies ahead in the latter stage of the disease. The earlier one identifies with the caregiving role, the better for becoming part of a community of caregivers, sharing strategies of coping, learning and supporting one another.
The more duties = the heavier weight
