...Like most caregivers , I always wanted to be the "best," yet I knew I
fell short. There is no way that I know of to be a perfect caregiver.
The needs of any care receiver can change subtly, in a flash. We can
miss signals, or just be so tired and stressed we know we can't deliver
everything needed, no matter how hard we try. That can bring on a huge
case of unearned, caregiver guilt. Most of you have been there.
