Caregivers need regular breaks

If you’re the primary caregiver for a child or a sick spouse or an elderly parent, you may need a break.

In fact, you need regular breaks. The best way you can take care of the person you love is to care for yourself and get some help.

That’s a truth we know instinctively, but sometimes, when you’re in the middle of taking care of someone you love very much, it’s difficult to find the time to take a break. Take a break anyway. No matter, if it’s only for a short nap. Or, a quick lunch with a friend. Or, an afternoon at a movie.

I know. I’ve been taking care of my daughter who has been struggling with breast cancer. I know how diffcult it is to find time for a break. But, I always remind myself, no matter how difficult it is to create the time, it’s something I have to do. It’s impossible to continue being a good caregiver if you don’t take breaks.
