Caregivers need care, too

As a caregiver, you are so important to the health and wellbeing of the person you're caring for. We know that you help in so many ways, small and large, every day. It may be rewarding work, but we understand that it can also be stressful, both mentally and physically.

That's why it's so important to take some time for yourself, even if it's just a little bit a day. It'll help you be your best for yourself and your loved one.

Here's a simple checklist to help make sure you check in with yourself on a regular basis:

Stay connected with others

Social connections make us feel stronger and less stressed. Make a point of talking with a friend or family member on a regular basis.


Physical activity not only makes us feel good, but it gives us the strength and energy to keep going. Even a few 10-minute sessions a day will make a difference.

Watch what you eat

Eating whole, healthy foods will make you feel better. That means avoiding processed foods, sugars and carbs, which can make you tired and moody.

Have fun

Be sure to take a little time for yourself each day. Being playful and doing the things you enjoy can help your overall health.

Time for relaxation

Try meditation, yoga or mindfulness. Whatever lets you let go of stress will help you maintain balance in everyday life.
