Can I trust you with my secrets.
No. I don’t want you to keep them. I want you to SHARE them! Let your loved ones, your family, your friends, your co-workers, and even your boss know them.
These secrets are too important! Everyone must know!
These are secrets about how to be a better caregiver.
You have told me some of your secrets, like how you skip meals, or forget your own medications because you are taking care of your loved one.
Have you ever postponed medical treatment because you don’t have time, or because you don’t have anyone else to care for your loved one? DON’T LET ME HEAR YOU DOING THAT! You have to learn ways to put yourself first.
As caregivers, we often put the needs of our family members ahead of our own needs – even to a dangerous extreme. I admit, I’ve done it…and later regretted it.
In this episode Troy Doughan, In-Home Program Director with Apex Home Health Care, and I discuss this topic. We will have some revealing talks about caregivers (maybe about someone like you).
