Caregivers have the very important job of ensuring the health and wellbeing of others, but who’s making sure the caregivers maintain their own physical, mental, and emotional health?
If you’ve ridden on a commercial airplane, you’ll remember the flight attendant’s suggestion of putting on your own oxygen mask during emergencies before attempting to help others with their masks. This action is not selfish. It ensures your own safety first, so that you can help others if needed.
Likewise, if you’re at home caring for a spouse or family member, it’s important to prioritize your own health. Again, this action is not selfish. While maintaining your own wellness greatly benefits you individually, it also creates a strong foundation from which you can provide more effective and compassionate care for your loved one at home.
