Tips for Finding Life Balance As a Caregiver


Whether you are a professional caregiver or caring for a loved one at home, finding time to recharge your batteries is essential.

How do you balance the needs of caregiving with other life needs?

  • What are some of the ways you practice daily/weekly/monthly self-care?
  • How do you balance caregiving with other life needs, such as time with your friends, children or significant other?
  • In what ways do you share the responsibilities of caregiving with other family members or healthcare professionals?

These are just some suggestions – tell us in 150 words or more how you find life balance as a caregiver.
