While many studies highlight the negative aspects of caregiving, the National Opinion Research Center recently shared a refreshing and very important perspective.

The Benefits of Being a Caregiver in Las Vegas, NV
Most caregivers pointed to the vast number of intrinsic benefits of caregiving, such as the satisfaction that comes from knowing you are helping another human being, or the knowledge that you are adding value to another person's life. Yet, beyond these altruistic benefits, the American Psychological Association found that there were also many tangible, physical benefits as well.
For example, senior caregivers who focused on the positive aspects of caregiving were found to be less likely to suffer from depression than non-caregivers. Further, as a group, care providers are generally stronger – both mentally and physically – than those who are not care providers. Much of this may be attributed to the constant attention to detail, focus, and complex thought that are required of care providers. Caregiving is also a very active vocation. While constantly moving may be tiring, it keeps the body strong. Dr. Lisa Fredman, an epidemiologist from Boston University, put it this way, "Most caregiving activities require you to move around a lot. It keeps people on their feet, up and going."
Becoming a caregiver is not only emotionally rewarding, but it is great for the body and mind as well.
