Take some advice from fellow caregivers to serve as a reminder that you are not alone.
“Make time for yourself every day. Even if it’s just a short walk, shower, or eating lunch outside. Taking a little ME time is important to recharge your batteries so you can continue caring for the person you are caring for.” – Heather M.
“Be kind to yourself. If you don’t care for yourself, you’ll have nothing to give…” – Susan G.
“It’s all about the moments, cherish the good, distract the bad… Love through all.” – Patty M.
“Don’t be too proud to accept help when needed.” – Marjorie F.
“Instead of trying to bring your loved one to your side of the river, go to theirs. Try and truly understand what standing in their shoes is like. Join THEIR journey.” – Diane J.
