Abstract

Becoming a caregiver is a time of transition that requires a restructuring of one's goals, behaviors, and responsibilities. Although the individual circumstances that bring one to the caregiver's role may differ, one thing is certain—no one comes to the job prepared for the task. No matter how difficult the role, however, becoming a caregiver can give birth to new skills, new strengths, and new friends and contacts. Being able to cope with the stress of being a caregiver is part of the art of caregiving.
