Being a carer for a family member can have a significant impact upon your relationships. It can often mean that the boundaries within a relationship change - particularly if you are caring for a partner or parent.
It is not unusual for carers to feel a sense of loss for the relationships that they used to have with loved ones.
However, caring for a loved one can also bring a renewed closeness and intimacy. It is important to remember that there is no right or wrong way to feel.
