The further you get into retirement, the more difficult it may become to continue providing care to someone else.
Strenuous tasks such as bathing and dressing others could become even harder to accomplish.
You may not be as strong or as balanced as you were before, putting you and the person you are caring for at risk. For this reason, it’s important to recognize your limits as well as to address your own needs.
So, speak up and advocate for yourself.
It’s ok to take a break from being a caregiver, ask for assistance, and focus on your own health first.
Schedule your own check-up appointments, take scheduled breaks, and make sure you are engaging in physical and social activities you enjoy.
Remember – you can’t care for someone else if you aren’t caring for yourself.
