Sadly, a former co-worker of mine shot and killed her special needs sister today and then turned the gun onto herself. She is in critical condition. I know she has been caring for her sister for many years without any help while continuing to work full-time for their support. Please remember them in your prayers.
A few years ago, another caregiver (daughter) shot and killed her mom and then herself at the hospital where her mom was a patient. No one but another caregiver really understands the soul-sapping stress of this position. What is the answer?
