Caring for the Caregiver
Caregivers may be so focused on caring for a loved one that they neglect their own well-being which may affect the quality of care they provide.
Go to the Family Caregivers of BC website to do your own self-assessment. The assessment will help you understand how well you are balancing the demands of caregiving. The website also contains a variety of resources to help you including a flip book on staying healthy while caregiving.
