Our bodies are constantly changing every day, and it is up to us to take care of ourselves. It is important to not give up on our bodies as we age, but rather, to take extra care of them.
Life can get tricky. Balancing your own life is hard enough, but add caring for your aging loved one to the mix, and you might find yourself exhausted. Having a parent, family member, or friend who is getting older and needs extra care and assistance can sometimes require more of you than you can provide. You do not have to experience your role as a caregiver alone. There are many caregiver resources available, and one great option to give yourself a much-needed rest is respite care.
