Caring for a child or older and disabled family members brings both pleasure and pressures. Along with the satisfaction of giving back, caregivers often find the experience mentally, emotionally, and physically exhausting. Employees may feel torn between their responsibilities to their workplace and to their loved one. They may feel guilty about not giving enough attention to either. This can lead to stress, anxiety, and feelings of being overwhelmed.
