Introduction
Naturally in society it can be observed, that there are 2 kinds of people which is undependable of their age; people who care about others (nurses, doctors, other health professionals like dentists, nutritionists and psychologists, beauty professionals like hairdressers and nail & make-up artists, any service providers, scientists, teachers, producers, sponsors) and those who receive other’s care (patients, clients, customers, students, athletes, artists). Those roles are also evident among a family’s members, even if it means that the husband becomes treated as a child. Metaphorically, the caregivers can be considered as the adults, protecting and providing for the children, who in this case are the care recipients. This pattern can also be observed in any small or large social construct, such as the workplace (e.g. secretaries and officers, janitors and personnel), a town’s community (e.g. priests and parishioners, mayors and locals), a nation or a union of them (e.g. presidents and citizens, European Parliament and Europeans).
But can the caregivers’ resources be unlimitedly provided for the care recipients taking? The answer is surely negative; strict economy of resources and energy is the only way to not tip off the balance. How would the world be, if there was only either one kind? Caregiving comes with a toll; from insignificant to unbearable and self-destroying. And last but not least, who cares about the caregivers? They do need it.
