Traditionally, caregiving, especially for individuals with dementia, hasn’t been highlighted as a sought-after career path, lacking visibility in mainstream career discussions. Yet, many embrace this role driven by deep affection and reverence for their loved ones. This commitment, however, comes with its unique set of challenges, notably the physical and emotional strain it places on the caregiver, often referred to as the “invisible second patient.” Recognizing the significance of self-care for caregivers is crucial, as is understanding effective strategies for managing the complexities of dementia care, both for the well-being of the caregiver and the recipient of care. This insight underscores the need for greater support and resources for those in caregiving roles, highlighting their indispensable contribution to the lives of those they care for.
