“It’s important to understand as a caregiver that you have to be really cognizant and aware of the fact that you need to adjust your role.”

Carol's first instinct when her son became a quadriplegic at the age of 20 was to fall back into taking care of her baby. Although that worked well for them for a while, she advises to take stock at different stages of life as a caregiver to make any necessary adjustments to ensure each other’s well being. Asking yourself how to adjust your role along the way will be helpful to both you and the person you’re caring for.
