As the primary caregiver, taking care of your health allows you to provide higher levels of care.
It is important not to neglect your own body and soul if you are to cope with the daily challenges of taking care of your loved one.
- Strive to exercise or be involved in a physical activity daily, ideally spending time out in the fresh outdoors.
- Maintain a healthy diet and regular mealtimes
- Stay in touch with your friends, they are a good source of company and stress relief.
- Ensure that your home is safe – when people are tired and feeling a bit down, it is easy to trip over something and fall.
