First things first!

A caregiver's role involves many emotions and striking a balance between these emotions is a challenge for the caregiver. However, if you separate the emotions from the tasks involved in care giving, much of the things like doing grocery shopping, or the laundry, paying the bills or handling the paperwork are pretty routine. Looking after your aging parents' household chores is not caring. It is the emotional support you can provide to them in their twilight years that makes the difference.
