You might be supporting someone through physical support, through communications support or through simply your presence.  Support may be provided across the room, across the street or across the country.  The one thing that Caregivers often don't give support to is their own mental and physical health.  We help Caregivers understand the stresses and costs of their sacrifice and we help find resolutions to cope with those issues.
