Dear Loved One of a Caregiver,

I know it is not easy for you either.

We are tired.

Angry.

The emotional rollercoaster that goes on in our head is a ride that you, unfortunately, have been riding voluntarily for far too long now.

Thank you for being there, staying there, and taking on all the extras that come with the fact that we are caring for others so deeply that we come home and have nothing left.

To the loved ones of a caregiver that drop everything just as fast so we can jump in the car and be there, thank you.

I know it is not easy for you either; I know this is not a journey you imagined being on, yet life has led you here.

We are tired.

Angry.

But, we could not do this without your love and support.

Thank you,

Caregivers
