Welcome to part 1 of our series on Self Care for Caregivers! 53 million people across the U.S. are unpaid caregivers for a loved one, and they need intentional self care every single day. Caregiving responsibilities affect the caregiver in almost every aspect of life, taking a big toll on body, mind, and spirit. It’s a hard job, sometimes very solitary, and affects quality of life for the caregiver. Because the caregiving system of a terminally ill or seriously ill person is so fragile, it’s important that the caregiver practice self care on a daily basis. Self care that cares for the physical body, the mental state, and the spirit is paramount. Whole person self care is what’s needed. This series will offer self care tips and suggestions to choose from to make your self care easier. Subscribe to the podcast to receive notice of all the episodes in the series!
