Tips for Caregivers
Don’t try to do this alone.
Reach out to loved ones, medical professionals, NGOs and your community.
Make sure you get enough rest
This includes time for yourself and setting boundaries on what you can do.
Don’t neglect aches and pains
Caregiving can be physical work and you might be straining your body. See a healthcare professional before it gets worse.
Let go of guilt
You won’t be perfect all the time. But you are enough.
Fill your own cup
Don’t stop doing things that make you happy. You need as much care as anyone else.
