The Stress of Caregiving

These four minute YouTube clips from a PBS video series define, describe, explain and provide suggestions for managing caregiver burnout.

Part one: While family caregivers give of themselves out of love, there are real physical, emotional and financial costs associated with caregiving. As we live longer and caregiving becomes a bigger issue in the U.S., learn what can be done to help our caregiving community.

Part two: Care giving can be more dangerous for the care giver than the patient. Physician Esther M. Sternberg, M.D. (author of The Balance Within) discusses the need to care for yourself while you are caring for a loved on.
