Thank you, Caregivers!
November is National Caregiver Month. We want to take the time to thank each and every caregiver for helping your loved one get the care and attention they need each and every day. Caregivers are a vital piece to the treatment plan for the patient. The caregiver is there to make sure their loved one makes all their appointments and gets the treatment needed for the best quality of life. Caregivers are not just a mean of transportation, but also provide support and love. Thank you to all the caregivers out there for taking the time to help your loved one through their emotional and physical health journey.
Don't neglect your own health while caring for another.
Maintaining your own health is a piece to the caregiver puzzle. It is so important for the caregivers to maintain your own health as well. Being a caregiver is rewarding but can also be overwhelming and stressful at times. It is okay to say no. Do not over commit yourself to exhaustion. Always remember to take care of yourself so you are able to be there for your loved one. It is ok to reach out to other family members or friends for help and assistance in caring for your loved one. This will also help you find time for yourself to make your own appointments and maintain your overall health. The healthier you are physically and mentally, will allow you to be there as a caregiver for someone else. Thank you once again for all you do!
