What insights do you have to share?

With the holidays approaching, what advice would you give a fellow caregiver about caring for a loved one during family get-togethers? What travel tips would you give someone traveling with chronic medical needs? How about mealtimes or medications? Caregivers are experts in taking care of their loved ones or patients, their families and themselves. In 150 words or more, tell us what you wish someone had shared with you when you first became a caregiver.
