There are times when a family cannot adequately care for a mother or father, an aunt or an uncle, a grandfather or grandmother, a sibling or spouse, and must turn over the task to those who are more able, either in an institutional or a home setting. These are not easy decisions for anyone, but there is much relief when a good caregiving solution is found. It is a happy family who finds compassionate and wise care for their relative provided by doctors and physicians, nurses, attendants, nurses aides, therapists, and support staff. These caregivers make many sacrifices in performing their jobs, which are often physically and emotionally difficult. A family's gratitude can go a long way to make the job of caregiving easier.
