• Home Instead Senior Care

YOU CAN'T POUR FROM AN EMPTY CUP. PRACTICING SELF CARE IS NOT SELFISH.

  • SCHEDULE "ME TIME" Even just a few mindful moments daily can help reduce feelings of stress or resentment. Consider a quick walk, three minutes of deep breathing, crack open a book to read.

  • CREATE A GRATITUDE JAR OR JOURNAL. Don't lose sight of why you became a caregiver! Using notecards/journal to record what you're thankful for and reflect on what makes you smile.

  • (ACTUALLY) UNPLUG: Plan for respite care to take a day off or enjoy a week's vacation. While you're away, stay away. Talk about things other than caregiving.

  • KNOW YOUR WORKPLACE BENEFITS. Take time to familiarize yourself with family-friendly benefits your employer may offer, especially now during the current work environment.

  • JOIN A SUPPORT GROUP. Don't let social distancing create feelings of isolation. Dedicate time weekly to connect with other caregivers and lift one another up.
