In brief: Caregiving risks

This depends on many things.
For instance, how socially connected were you before you started caregiving? Are you the only one doing the caregiving, or do you have additional assistance? Do you have breaks from this, where you can mingle with others and do outside activities? Is the person you're caring for, able to be interested in your needs and wants? All these affect the situation.
