You spend your days (and maybe nights) helping someone else. If you are a caregiver for someone who is chronically ill, you have already discovered there is a need to be more compassionate, thoughtful, and sacrificial than you ever anticipated. But to be able to continue your physically and spiritually demanding caregiving, you need help too.
Dr. Michael R. Emlet offers you help to think biblically about your struggles and the struggles of the person you are caring for. Then he shares useful strategies for avoiding social, physical, and spiritual caregiving burnout.
