When we think of caregiving, the first thought that often comes to mind is taking care of an elderly parent or relative. The reality is that we all can find ourselves in situations where we need care. It can happen at any time and at any age.

My first pregnancy required four months of bed rest. I never expected that I would need help with simple every-day tasks like preparing meals. But that’s exactly the situation I found myself in.
