Self-care is caregiving. No one can pour from an empty cup. It’s important to remember that taking care of yourself is just as important as taking care of the person you are caring for. In fact, it is important to take breaks and make sure to take care of yourself.
Here are some suggestions for taking a break from caregiving.
  1. Hire a professional caregiver.
  2. Enlist the help of trusted family and friends.
  3. Enroll your loved one in adult daycare services.
  4. Join a support group.
  5. Take a vacation.
  6. Use respite care.
