The CareGiver Partnership is kicking off National Family Caregiver’s Month with 5 essential health tips for every caregiver, excerpted from its “25 Healthy Tips for Caregivers” featured on Twitter and Pinterest.
“With 80 percent of caregivers reporting a high level of stress and 17 percent of caregivers saying their health worsened while providing care, it’s important to focus on caregiver health,” says Lynn Wilson, an experienced caregiver and founder of The CareGiver Partnership, a national retailer of incontinence products and other home health care supplies. “Being a family caregiver requires a high level of compassion and personal sacrifice, and it’s easy to neglect one’s own health and interests.”
Wilson says these 5 easy-follow tips are essential for the physical and emotional health of any caregiver.
“The healthiest, happiest caregivers often have a support system in place, which may include online libraries and social communities, and services like meals delivery and respite care,” says Wilson.
