Maintaining your health and balance while caring for a loved one
The job of caregiving can be painstaking, and without proper management, will put your own health at risk. Whether caring for someone with a chronic illness, or during rehabilitation, your success starts with education. You don’t have a boss to turn to for mentoring, or an established team to help you. It’s up to you to take care of yourself, learn about the disease and successful coping systems. We hope these articles help guide you to protect your own well-being while being the best caregiver possible for your loved one.
