Caregivers are frequently told to take care of themselves. Self-care is important because nearly 70% of caregivers are hospitalized or die before the person they’re caring for is gone. That’s a stressful statistic. Despite this fact. we’re lucky to get our daily to-do list completed! As a result, finding time to do self-care seems impossible!
In this episode, I bring you as many tips, suggestions, and ideas as we could fit in an hour. My guest, Barbara Cohn cared for her husband for a decade. He had younger-onset Alzheimer’s. In writing her book Calmer Waters, it was Barbaras’ goal to help other caregivers feel happier, have more energy and time for themselves, sleep better, and feel more relaxed.
That’s a big order for one book and one podcast episode but you’ll be happy you tuned in because she squeezed in a lot of great tips and advice.
