As a caregiver, it is important to take care of others and be intentional about taking care of yourself.
You can only care for others optimally if you take good care of yourself!
Self-Care Tips for Caregivers
Take time to cater to your own needs. Watch for signs of stress, such as impatience, loss of appetite, difficulty with sleep, concentration, or memory. Pay attention to changes in your mood, a loss of interest in usual activities, or an inability to accomplish usual tasks.
Eat a well-balanced diet. Drink plenty of water every day.
Exercise by taking short walks daily or at least three times a week.
Listen to guided relaxation recordings or relaxing music.
Schedule short rest periods between activities. Make it a priority to get a good night's sleep.
Set limits for what you can do.
Don't overload your daily to-do list. Be realistic.
Find a few hours several times a week for activities that you find meaningful and enjoyable.
Let family members and friends help with household chores, meal preparation, childcare, and shopping.
Keep the lines of communication open among your loved one, your family and friends, and the health care team.
Share your feelings with family members or other caregivers, or join a support group.
Give yourself credit: The care you give does make a difference.
