Caregivers often feel they must tend to their loved one’s needs full time; however, burning yourself out can negatively affect your own health. You must take good care of yourself in order to care for others. Caring Circle provides a monthly Tips for Family Caregivers e-newsletter free of charge with articles like:
- Supporting a person with arthritis
Arthritis can generate feelings of frustration and low self-worth. It is a difficult condition to understand as an onlooker. The chronic pain may also lead to fatigue, depression, and anxiety. Fortunately, family support can help break this cycle.
- Nonverbal signs of pain
Dementia itself does not cause physical pain. But people with dementia still encounter pain, just like anyone else. Learn the nonverbal signs of pain so your loved one doesn’t suffer.
