Words of Support for Caregivers
Treat Yourself — Without the Guilt
"Do things for yourself — get your hair done, have a massage, or go for a walk. Anything to break the "same old, same old routine" and let you commune with nature. Leave your cell phone number if you feel you must, and tell them how long you'll be out. Then go.
Unless you take care of yourself, you're no good to the person who needs you to help take care of them."
