How is family caregiving different than solo caregiving?

Division of labor: Tha family as a group helps their loved one with different activities and this helps reduce the care burden for one individual. Each member has their tasks but it is important to have a routine and not deviate from it too much.

Family caregiving: I agree with Dr. Patel. Family caregiving can mean both rotation of face to face time and division of different care giving tasks. It may mean less burnout for a solo caregiver and can help to buildin supports with loved ones who now understand what the caregiveing role is about.
