Did you know that good caregivers take care of themselves?
Caregivers shouldn't feel they have to do everything themselves. While you or someone close to you may want and need to be the main caregiver, keep in mind that others can help, too. Talk to people with similar experiences or those in similar situations. It's essential for caregivers to realize they are not alone. There's no question—being a caregiver is a hard job. There are times when caregivers will feel burdened and exhausted. The most effective things caregivers can do are take care of themselves and reach out to others.
