The second wave affects healthcare leaving hospitals struggling to cope and critical drugs and oxygen in short supply. Family members are the caregivers for persons as there are limited alternative facilities and they are preferred for caring. The changing social milieu in India such as urbanization and nuclear family & also lack of trust, insufficient information, decentralized system & delay in getting help is placing a significant burden on family members & creating a gap between CareSeekers & CareGivers.
