If you have spent time as a caregiver for an aging loved one, you know the stress: not having time to yourself, creating specialized meals for them, not getting exercise, eating right or being able to sleep more than a couple hours each night.
You don’t mind putting up with these issues, because you love them and want them near you, but there comes a time when you just need to rest. That’s where Avamere Heritage Rehab of Tacoma comes in.
