A Caregiver Conversation by Carallel: 7 Achievable Self-Care Ideas for the Busy Caregiver

If you’re caring for a loved one due to aging, illness, or disability, you’ve likely been told something like “don’t forget to take care of yourself”. Probably more times than you can count. 

And as frustrating as that can be to hear, they’re right. Because if you’re not well, the level of care you’re able to provide your loved one will take a hit. But even more importantly, because your health and well-being matters every bit as much as theirs does. 

So the question becomes how can you take care of yourself even when you don’t feel like you have the time? 

Matt Perrin, Carallel’s Director of Caregiver Engagement is joined by Sheila Schultz to discuss seven practical self-care ideas for the busy caregiver.
