Many households meet costs of living because both partners work full-time. As a partner’s ability to work is compromised, financial stress increases. That often means the other partner, while working full-time, must take care of a partner who is increasingly dependent for help with eating, bathing, walking, etc. The impact is physical and emotional, resulting in caregiver fatigue, frustration, anxiety, and depression. The good news is that you can act to decrease the intensity of the ill effects.
