Dr. Jon Segal, founder of Discount Medical Supplies, continues to spread the word about the challenges of modern caregivers.

He said caregiver stress can sometimes have a detrimental effect on the health of the caregiver at rapid pace. But he says this problem can be controlled if it is address properly in time. He says caregivers should not hesitate to reach out to the myriad of resources available including support groups, local services, and reading materials.
