Being a carer can have a considerable effect on your life and wellbeing so make sure you have some regular time to relax or do something just for you. Put aside some time, each day, for yourself – you could have a cup of tea and read the paper, listen to some music, do the crossword or go for a short walk.
Caring can be hard work, and it may be difficult to put yourself first, even if it is just for five minutes. You will be better placed to support someone else if you spend a bit of time looking after yourself.
Dementia Connect in Warwickshire can support anyone living with dementia or caring for someone with dementia. The service provides personalised advice and practical and emotional support, helping you and your loved ones at all stages of dementia.
