This is the final installment of this blog series. This is such an important subject because so many of us are dealing with these issues every day. I hope this series has given you helpful tips and peace of mind.
Caregiver’s Personal Time – The key to maintaining a balanced lifestyle is managing family and work responsibilities while still allowing for personal time. I suggest setting aside time during the week for caregivers to focus on their own needs, activities and personal relationships.
Work Together – To control anxiety, allow elderly parents and children to make age appropriate decisions.
Build a Support Network – Join a support group or ask friends and family for guidance to help release feelings of guilt, stress and frustration. Keep lines of communication open among family members, co-workers and friends.
