Twenty Ways To Care for Caregivers

Twenty of the best tips and ideas collected from Caregivers and care managers of the Medicare Alzheimer's Project in Broward and Dade Counties, Florida.
. Laugh about something everyday
. Take care of yourself physically.
. Eat a well-balanced diet.
. Talk with someone every day.
. Let family and friends help. Give them printed material on memory disorders so they can better understand your relative. Give them a chance.
. Give yourself permission to have a good cry.
. Tears aren't a weakness, they reduce tension.
. Exercise. A brisk walk counts.
. Get adequate rest.
. Try a bowl of Cheerios and milk before bed to promote sleep.
. Avoid noisy and/or tension-filled movies at night. The late news itself can add to stress. Skip it.
. Reduce daily caffeine intake.
. Get professional help if you feel your support system isn't adequate or if you feel overwhelmed.
. Take a break very day, even if it's only 10 minutes alone in the backyard.
. Explore community resources and connect yourself with them.
. Listen to music.
. Learn relaxation techniques.
. Regularly attend one or more support groups and education workshops.
. Give yourself a treat at least once a month: an ice cream cone....a new shirt or dress....a night out with friends....a flowering plant.
. Read your Caregiver's Bill of Rights (and Today's Caregiver magazine)
. Know your limitations.
