Creating a care-life balance

The theme for the 2015 National Family Caregivers month is Respite: Care for the Caregivers, which brings the focus of caregiving to the caregiver, and the importance of taking care of oneself while also prioritizing the needs of another person. Being a caregiver often means putting self care on the back burner, but we all know that by taking better care of oneself, we are better able to care for others.Senior Lady in Wheelchair Holding Hands

The Caregiver Action Network offers these 10 tips for family caregivers on how to make caring for a loved one easier. One of the most important tips is asking for help. Create a team of caregivers so that you and your loved one both have a greater system of support. Ask friends if they will help prep weekly meals with you. Ask family members to take turns attending doctor’s appointments. Sharing responsibilities will keep your tasks at a manageable level, while creating a support system.

Another important customer review tip is maintaining your own health. In order to provide the best care possible, and ensure we stay well, exercise and eating well must be priorities. Oftentimes, designating time to exercise and planning healthy meals seem like other items on an ever-growing to-do list, but having a healthy lifestyle will save you time in the long run by providing you with more energy and focus to accomplish your tasks while staying out of the doctor’s office.

Remember to make self-care a priority and you and your loved one will both benefit. If you need help caring for a loved one, All Care Home Health is happy to serve as a resource. All Care offers various services that can make caregiving more manageable and will help you create a stronger care-life balance.
