Self Care for Caregivers
As I'm sure we all know, caring for our LO can be draining and exhausting. Self-care is extremely important in order to remain efficient and sane, and I am here to ask the forum about ways you conduct self-care. Whether it be winding down at the end of the night with a good book, a bubbly bath, or a sweet snack, I'd like to know what you have tried, what is successful/unsuccessful, and what helps you the most.
Thanks for reaching out!
Can you update about the situation with your GM and her friend? How has that worked out, or not?
I’d also appreciate if you would describe how your posts (and our responses) will be used for your class assignments
I’m curious about both, thanks
I am with Sel. I would like to hear whether your family has come to any decision about GM and her friend. I would also like to know whether you are using this forum and the responses of individual members to complete class assignments.
Thank you for sharing your experiences with our community. Being a student in the medical field of course does not preclude you from participating in these forums. Our guidelines do restrict research posts promoting for-profit endeavors or not-for profit
solicitations. This post does not appear to be in violation of these terms, but if you would like to review the ALZConnected guidelines they are linked in our help page: https://www.alzconnected.org/contact.aspx
1) Lately, I try to pick dates someone can be with dad so I can go see a show or concert. I'm going to see Volta soon (Cirque Du Soleil).
2) Read from my kindle.
3) Go to the beach and take my dad in transport chair for an hour walk.
Keep up the professionalism, Dee. You will get far. Take care.
Self care for me is;
1-connecting with other caregivers via this forum.
2-attending a monthly support group in person.
3- soaking in a hot bath.
5-vacuuming the house and washing the sheets.
6-filling up my pill box first (before DH’s box) to remind myself that I am important too.
7-taking my meds as prescribed.
8-keeping an attitude of gratitude
As you can see, my self care is not glamorous. Money is tight. Time is scarce. Gratitude is free AND priceless. It lifts me up.

I, am new here. I have a relative suffering from alz. I would be so thankful and grateful if someone can give me more advises and information how to treat them correctly? thank you
Taking longer showers, putting on make-up, listening to music, and a 5 minute meditation each day. All of these works for me.
Dee -couldn't you read existing posts where this topic was addressed already instead of just doing a paragraph? You know, like research work? Compare what people did in a better and worse economy etc.
Would "make it worth [your] while" a bit more I would think.
