The holidays can be stressful for anyone, especially a family caregiver. In a 2017 AARP survey, nearly seven in ten caregivers said it is emotionally stressful to care for their loved
one during the holiday season (29% say “very stressful;” 39% “somewhat stressful”).
Not surprisingly, working caregivers and those caring for parents tend to feel the most stressed. In Maryland, there are more than 770,000 family caregivers jugging work, family and creating holiday memories for their loved ones.
So this holiday season, give yourself a gift: reduced stress and guilt. That can go a long way to making sure you have the best possible holiday season with your loved ones.
