Caregiver Tips - Take Pride

Take pride in your efforts. Being a caregiver is not easy, and those who do it are special. Following the tips for caregiving can help you feel good about yourself and the care you provide. Remember:

  • Take care of yourself by exercising regularly, getting proper rest and nutrition, and having regular medical checkups. Taking care of yourself includes taking time off to take part in pleasant, nurturing activities.
  • Help the person you care for to be as independent as possible.
  • Recognize when you need extra help, and accept support from others. A helping hand at the right time can make all the difference.
