Help I’m a Caregiver Part 3

Are You New to Caregiving?

Here are the 3 important things you need to know as a New Caregiver.

  1. As a Caregiver – You are giving a gift of love
  2. You are caring for your loved one because…
  3. You are caring for you, now!

Let’s look a little closer at:-

3.     You are caring for You!

You are a critical caregiver, caring for you is KEY!

Always find ways to keep your Care tank chock-full

When your Care tank is empty it’s hard to care for anyone else.

Find Time for You every day!

Whether it’s reading your favourite book

Playing your favourite game

Making your favourite meal

Enjoying your favourite interest

Doing something everyday to keep your Care tank chock-full is vital

Warning – When you don’t have boundaries in place

Caring for another person can become stressful and a burden

Now is the time to put the right steps in place in every area of your life.

Social – Sharing

Emotional – Time  

Physical – Space 

Psychological – Endurance

Financial – Investment

Caring – Commitment

Taking time for you helps balance and helps centre you.

Taking time off every week, just for you is necessary.

Taking time for a holiday each year is important to remember.

You have essential skills, which have prepared you for this time of giving.

You are Amazing, You Contribute & Add Value!

Memorize  to Honour, Love & Respect You!

Remember stability – strength & steadiness

Remember constancy – loyalty & reliability

Remember dependability – trustworthiness & faithfulness

Remember you were created to be you!

Create a great day!
