November 2023 – Care For You, Too

If you are a caregiver, you may be struggling to find time for your own self-care. This month’s theme encourages you to practice self-compassion and find ways to take care of yourself while caring for others.

Caregiving is rewarding but can also be quite challenging. Take steps to take care of yourself so you have the ‘fuel’ needed to take care of others. And remind yourself it’s OK to ask for help from family, friends, and others. This goes for busy parents, too.

Ask people to help in specific ways, like making a meal, visiting a person or babysitting, or taking a person out for a short time. Seek out services, resources, and training that can help if you are a family caregiver. Visit (Caregiver Corner) and

Share your experiences with other caregivers and other parents. This can help build a community of support, for you and them. Your work teammates may be part of your caregiver support system. Consider forming a ‘share circle’ to share experiences, resources, and solutions for common caregiving challenges.

Sustainability - Eat Right

Eat Right – Sustain Energy Levels    

Taking care of yourself is just as important as caring for others, especially when you’re a caregiver. It’s crucial to prioritize self-care to ensure your wellbeing and maintain your ability to provide quality care. One key aspect of self-care is eating right. As a caregiver, it’s easy to overlook your own dietary needs, but proper nutrition is vital for sustaining energy levels and overall health. Make sure to eat a balanced diet, including fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains. Avoid skipping meals and opt for nutritious snacks to keep your energy levels stable through the day.

 Sustainability - Be Fit

Be Fit – Move to Reduce Stress

Regular exercise not only benefits your physical health but also improves your mental wellbeing. Incorporate physical activity into your routine, even if it’s just a 30-minute walk or a few simple exercises. This will help reduce stress and boost your mood, enabling you to better cope with the challenges of caregiving. Remember, taking care of yourself is not selfish – it’s an essential part of being a caregiver.

 Sustainability - Live Well

Live Well – Practice Self-Care

Living well encompasses various aspects of self-care as a caregiver. It involves taking time for yourself and engaging in activities that bring you joy and relaxation. Find hobbies or interests that you can enjoy in your free time, whether it’s reading, gardening, painting, or listening to music. Set aside dedicated breaks to recharge and rejuvenate. Establish boundaries and learn to say no when necessary to prevent burnout and maintain a health work-life balance.
