In brief: Your committment

Being a fulltime caregiver requires a lot of patience and strength.
You will be giving up a job which may lead to a financial loss, unless you are getting paid to be the caretaker. You may be changing adult diapers, listening to the same stories and helping with bathing etc., depending on the level of disability. You may be making sure they take their medications and take them on outings when poss.
