How to Help Yourself in Your Caregiving

Being a caregiver is one of the most important roles you’ll ever play. It can happen suddenly, with an accident or illness, or a new diagnosis. You may find yourself taking time off from work, making meals or handling finances. All of a sudden you’re in it. Listen to my Charlotte Today segment for ideas on caregiving and how to help yourself. Here is some of what I shared.

  1. Talk about the issues before there is an issue.
  2. Look for an opening in daily life – an article or news story; something going on with a friend.
  3. Keep trying.
  4. Bring family members into this.

And if you need respite consider coming on our Caregiver Cruise January 2018.
