Part 6: What am I doing for myself today?

You need to keep yourself healthy and well in order to care for others. It's up to you; nobody else is able to do it for you.

Guide: Do something for yourself to avoid caregiver stress. Decide what you want to do (not what you should do, or have a need to do) and write some ideas below. For example, going for a 20 minute walk, or connecting with other care partners.

  • How much will you do?
  • When will you do it?
  • What resources do you need to do it?
  • Don't worry if you can't do it, try again tomorrow

One possibility for connecting with other Care Partners is through support groups. Consider reaching out to your local Society to inquire about available support groups in your area.
