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!
