So is Caregiving expensive to your health?

You can set yourself up for an unhealthy future with caregiving a Loved One?

Care givers are so busy caring for other people, they can put their own health at risk, due to health behaviours &  choices which can cause higher rates of poor health, sooner and later.

67.1% of Caregivers between 45-64 hold down a full or part time job.

Caregiving can bring additional stress, worry & burden. Without caring for your own health needs.

It can be very expensive in healthcare issues.

Taking small steps, every day can help you avoid them and bring more balance into your life.
