As a caregiver, you provide physical and emotional support for an aging or ill loved one. You are often on-call 24 hours a day, catching sleep when you can and resting when things are calm. Unless you have hired help or support from other family members or friends, you also bear the responsibility of daily living on your own. If you are the sole care provider, things that are less important than caring for your loved one slip through the cracks. It doesn’t mean these things aren’t important, it just means your loved one’s needs come first.
Do you know a caregiver? Perhaps someone in your family is serving in that role. Who takes care of them? First and foremost, each of us must do our best to take care of ourselves in whatever ways are possible. But having support or someone else to lean on can make a world of difference. If you’re a caregiver, you understand how helpful this is.
If you’ve flown on an airplane, you know about the little presentation the flight attendants do before take off. Just as the flight attendant reminds you to put your mask on first should there be a drop in cabin air pressure, and then help others, caregivers must be sure to put self-care at the top of their list. Seeking support is part of that self-care. There is an important reason for this.
Caring for the caregiver helps them to be on top of their game when it comes to responding to a loved one’s care. Knowing what is needed is the first step.
