Taking Care of Someone Means Taking Care of Yourself

Caregivers find gratification in providing care and meeting others’ needs. Because of this, they can easily overlook their own – a typical case of caregivers’ selflessness. This is commonly caused by their honest concern for the individual and the self-sacrificing desire to help others. But sometimes, it can also be a pang of unconscious guilt, which they may feel if they spend more time on themselves than those in need.
