Caregiving is difficult and exhausting work. If you don't take time to set limits on what you can do and when, and create balance in your life, you may begin to suffer from a condition called "burnout." When it comes to caring for an aging loved one, some people cope better than others. But everyone's flame is at risk for flickering out if they aren't careful.
