Siobhan shares her story about being a family caregiver for her mom who has dementia. As her mom’s condition progressed, Siobhan noticed an increase in the level of care needed, and, at times, felt overwhelmed. Because Siobhan is a younger caregiver one of the biggest challenges she encounters is struggling to identify with others and finding resources that fit her needs. She acknowledges it’s tough to fit everything in and sometimes doesn’t know how she does it. Siobhan encourages other caregivers to take their time, trust their instincts, and know that they are doing a good job even on days when they feel overwhelmed.
