In The Invisible Patient, national speaker and podcaster, senior care advisor, and caregiver advocate Annalee Kruger teaches caretakers how to appreciate the blessings of being a caregiver while also looking after themselves. Fulfilling the role of family caregiver is hard work, even if chosen willingly as an act of love to another. The stress of being a caregiver can lead to burnout and exhaustion and, in some cases, financial peril IF an Aging Plan is not in place. All this ongoing self-sacrifice causes a phenomenon known as compassion fatigue, leading caregivers to become the “invisible patient.”
