It is crucial that caregivers take care of themselves-not just their loved ones. You cannot help your family if you become exhausted.

Here are some things you can do to take care of yourself:

  • Read a book
  • Sit outside and listen to the birds
  • Take a walk
  • Go to a movie while a friend or professional tends to your loved one's needs
  • Make your own list of things to do that refresh you-and then do them!
