- Wikipedia defines Caregiver Stress Syndrome as “a condition of exhaustion, anger, rage, or guilt that results from unrelieved caring for a chronically-ill dependent”
- Caregivers of aging parents are far more likely than their peers to experience long-term medical problems like heart disease, cancer, diabetes or arthritis – along with elevated stress hormones, weaker immune systems, fatigue or insomnia, stomach complaints, slower wound healing and higher levels of obesity
- As if the health impacts weren’t enough, in 25% of cases, caring for an ill or aging relative is reported as playing a significant role in their divorce or separation
