Each year, eight million Canadians are caring for a friend or loved one who is ill or disabled. Nearly half of those are caring for a parent or an in-law. Managing the daily needs of an elderly or infirmed family member is an extremely challenging job. Yet, it can be vastly rewarding to help a loved one age with grace and dignity. Few expect to be thrust into the role of primary caregiver. So, most family caregivers are unprepared for the myriad of responsibilities and the time commitment required when serving as case manager for a loved one.
