Tips for Caregivers: Social Wellness and Your Health

When individuals face a life-limiting illness or injury, they generally need care in four areas: physical comfort, mental and emotional care, spiritual needs, and practical tasks.

Caregivers also need support with the physical and emotionally demanding care they provide their loved ones.

Here are a few ways for caregivers to improve their social wellness health while caring for a loved one facing a life-limiting illness or injury.

  • Look for easy ways to connect with friends. A phone call, a short coffee break, or a walk with a friend can bring joy and helps maintain personal relationships.
  • Get active. Walking, swimming, running, or bike riding are some ways to get moving, but working in the garden, mowing, or shopping can help keep your body healthy too. Finding 15 to 30 minutes each day to exercise may make you feel better and manage stress.
  • Keep up your routine. If you can, try to stay engaged in your regular activities which can help to manage stress and offer a social outlet.
  • Ask for help. Take a look at what you can and cannot do and be willing to let others help you. Some examples may be asking for help with chores such as cooking or cleaning, picking up children from activities, driving your loved one to appointments, or picking up medicines.
  • Join support groups. Support groups meet in person, by phone, or online and help you gain insights into what is happening, offer ideas on how to cope, and reassure you that you are not alone.
  • Connect with your loved one. Take time to share special moments with your loved one and gain strength through each other.
