If you’re not a caregiver yet, there’s a pretty good chance you might be eventually. Whether it’s caring for an aging parent or spouse, or perhaps a special-needs child, the number of caregivers is growing as the population ages.

Experts recommend finding time to take care of yourself, even if it means getting help.
