Middle age is daunting for everyone, especially caregivers. There are so many moving and complicated parts that can quickly overwhelm the best intentions or the most efficient management skills. One of the biggest mistakes I see middle age caregivers make over and over again is in overestimating their capacity, control and expectations. It doesn’t take long until they find out that their assumptions were not aligned with reality and they have become inadvertently a source of their own suffering.
