Caregiver Tip for the Holidays: Focus on Most Important Thing

Especially during the holidays, caregivers must remind themselves of their dual-purpose at this time in their lives:

  1. To care for their loved one

  2. To care for themselves

Everything else must need to be prioritized. One thing is for sure.  You won’t have time to do all the things you used to do for the holidays, so pick and choose things that will add some joy to you and your loved one’s lives.  Accept that this year the holidays may be different, determine what holiday activities or memories are most important to you.  Do not over-commit yourself to holiday activities that you probably won’t be able to support.  Pick and choose wisely!

This is so important for caregivers to remember. Sometimes we get so busy with the holidays and the pressure and stress, that we need to remind ourselves what is really most important. We just need to be there for our loved ones. If you have to let a few things go, so be it. It will not be the end of the world. Don’t be afraid to ask others for help!

So, what can you do to take the pressure off, but still have as nice of a holiday as possible for your loved one and yourself?  Read More→

Caregiver’s Life Message in a Candy Wrapper

Many of us have been there.  Sometimes you just have a yearning for a little piece of chocolate.  Eating that little piece of chocolate isn’t just a matter of pleasing your taste buds.  There’s a known relationship between chocolate and endorphins.  Endorphins are used by your neurons to communicate with each other.  Eating chocolate can release this chemical, which in turn can affect how people feel.  It actually causes people to feel pleasure.  Read More→
