Thanks to ALL CARE JERSEY for this vital tip to remember to look after ourselves, when caring for others ...
When caring for a family member or friend, whether short term after an operation or illness, or longer term due to disability or infirmity, it is vital that you remember to take good care of yourself, too. You are probably crucial to your loved one continuing to live at home. So:
• Make sure you get plenty of rest and sleep.
• Ask for support, you may be surprised at how many people will offer to step up and support you.
• Remember we are all human, and don’t get everything right all of the time.
• Relax, there are only 24 hours in a day. Many chores can wait until tomorrow.
