Caught Between Generations Radio

1405

SarahCare Caught Between Generations Radio, hosted by SarahCare founder and CEO, Dr. Merle Griff, is LIVE Thursdays at 3PM EST. Call 1-866-472-5792 during the show to ask your caregiver questions.

More than 40 percent of people in their 40s and 50s have at least one living parent, and a child under the age of 21 for whom they are providing care and assistance. Most likely there is also a job, a house to run, groceries to buy and meals to get on the table.

How can you cope with the massive demand on your time for love, attention, and decision-making skills?

We talk all things multi-generational, and provide practical tips you can use right now and in the long-term to make your life less stressful.

We know it’s not easy but Caught Between Generations is here to help.

Our program is a one-stop shop for information and resources for caregivers of multiple generations. If you are caring for children, grandchildren, spouse and/or parents, you do not have the time or the energy to search for all of the information that you need.

Tips for Managing Caregiver Stress

1078

As caregiver, your job of keeping your loved one safe, happy, and healthy is a stressful one. But just like the flight attendants tell us in their demonstrations, you need to take care of yourself first before you can provide assistance to others.Easier said than done, you say? Here are a few tips to help you take care of YOU.

MANAGING CAREGIVER STRESS

When you are taking care of an aging parent or spouse, you may forget to focus on your own needs. Add in the demands of a job, children, or other family members, and suddenly you find yourself at the bottom of the list of priorities, stressed out and exhausted.

The fact is that caregivers need to put themselves at the TOP of the list. You need to be in good shape physically and mentally to take care of those around you.

More than likely, you already know that stress is an issue in your life. You may be experiencing some of these symptoms:

  • Reduced attention span and concentration
  • Constant irritability or dulled emotions
  • Withdrawal from regular activities
  • Stomach problems
  • Difficulty sleeping

Below are a few tips for managing stress. Even 15-20 minutes here and there each day to concentrate on relaxation will make a world of difference.

  • Exercise and enjoy something you like to do(walking, dancing, biking, swimming, etc.) for a minimum of 20 minutes three times per week. Yoga is a great stress buster!
  • Meditate. Sit still and breathe deeply with your mind as ͞quiet͟ as possible whenever you begin to feel overwhelmed. Even if you feel like you don’t have a minute – take one.
  • Eat plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, proteins, nuts, and whole grains. Resist the urge to indulge in fast foods, caffeine, and sugar as substitutes for healthy eating.
  • Take up friends on those offers to help. Treat yourself to a manicure, massage, dinner or a movie. Take yourself away from the situation and reward yourself for all that you do.
  • Indulge yourself now and then. Treat yourself to a manicure, massage, dinner or a movie. Take yourself away from the situation and reward yourself for all that you do.
  • Take a break. Whether it’s a few days per month, or a few days each week, SarahCare can give you the break you need. You can relax knowing your loved one is being cared for in a warm, safe, friendly environment by our caring staff of healthcare professionals.
