6 Ways A Secondary Caregiver Can Contribute And Provide Support
We recently found out that my mother-in-law has mild cognitive impairment. As she deals with memory issues related to the condition, my father-in-law, husband and sister-in-law have taken on her primary caregiving duties. We all live close by, and I want to be as involved and supportive as I can be — while also respecting them and understanding that they are the main decision-makers. I’m in a similar place, more of a secondary caregiving role, with my grandmothers, who are both in their 80s. Their children — my parents, aunts and uncle — are doing the bulk of the caregiving, but it’s important to me to help however I can. It’s a challenging position to be in.
