Asking for help can be difficult, especially if you’re used to managing everything on your own. However, not asking for support when you need it can lead to compassion fatigue and caregiver burnout.

Reaching out for assistance not only helps you, but it also benefits the people you care for. If you need support, don’t hesitate to reach out. Local community organizations and caregiver support groups can also connect you with a wide range of support services.
