The (not so) Hidden Costs of Caregiving

Hi, I worked full time and when I was a caregiver for my mom; the huddles I had to jump to take a day off and not get paid. The insurance company was the easiest to deal with. In addition, the money lost, the social security earnings lost and the job opportunities lost. For me personally, I will never regret it; it was an honor to take care of my mom.

It truly is an honor to care for a loved one. The memories I have of caring for loved ones passed, will carry me through my life. I dream of a day when society will value the time and advance we give up to manage it. I try to remember not to count the financial toll, but it can be scary sometimes.
