Tips to help manage caregiver stress

The emotional and physical demands involved with caregiving can strain even the most resilient person. That’s why it’s so important to take advantage of the many resources and tools available to help you provide care for your loved one. Remember, if you don’t take care of yourself, you won’t be able to care for anyone else.

  • Accept Help — be prepared with a list of ways that others can help you
  • Focus on what you’re able to provide
  • Get connected — find caregiving resources in your community for assistance with transportation, meals or housekeeping.
  • Join a support group in your community or online
  • Stay connected with family and friends
  • Keep regular appointments with your physician and let them know that you are a caregiver.
