Preventing caregiver stress and depression

This good article on caregiver stress was written by the Detroit Free Press in late October.  (I couldn’t find it on their website, however.  I found it on another newspaper website.)

The author lists “five scenarios that could lead to feelings of stress and depression in caregivers and experts’ advice on how to cope with the situations.”

Four of the stressful scenarios apply to seniors. They are:

1- financial stress

2- moving a person who can’t

3- driving all the time

4- refusing help

Here’s a link to the article:
