Tips for Caregivers: Take Time for Yourself
Caring for a loved one who can no longer care for themselves can get exhausting and frustrating. If you’re a caregiver, make sure you take a break when you need one. If you’re the one who needs care, reassure your caregiver that it’s ok to step away sometimes.
Here are some simple ways to recharge:
- Take a walk.
- Practice deep breathing.
- Call a friend.
- Spend time on a hobby you enjoy.
