Here are resources to inspire you!!
Carers normally struggle to take care of their physical health and mental wellbeing. Carers UK provides information about how carers should be taking of their health normally. To read more.
Today, it is even more important that you look at ways to take care of yourself. Remember, the airplane oxygen mask story: When you are flying if there is an emergency and the oxygen masks drop down, you are told that you must first put the mask over your face before helping anyone else.
This is very much the case today. You must take care of your own physical and mental health so you can continue to care for others. To achieve this, you will need to be very creative, especially if you are living with family or the person you care for is with you 24/7.
