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.
  • Meditate.
  • Call a friend.
  • Spend time on a hobby you enjoy.
