I hear you, @jshdma I agree self-care is important for caregivers, but one thing I learned early on in my years of caregiving was that each and every caregiving situation, due to every patient being different, is unique. Often times we must remember not everyone is able to do the same things for their patient or themselves as someone else might have been able to do. Plus support structures, location, family situations, etc. all can vary greatly

While we can suggest what might help our fellow caregivers, not everyone will be in the situation where they can do what is suggested.

Strength, courage, and peace!

You are right. Advice may or may not apply universally but it is individual. Moreover, people may agree with the advice but not be able to use it for themselves. The one universal element here, unfortunately, is how difficult caregiving almost always is. Talk is easy, action is hard.
