Care for Care Partners

Being a Care Partner is an important and meaningful role that can be very rewarding. But it’s important to take care of yourself and your own well-being, too.

Ask for help:

Establishing backup Care Partners can help you find time for yourself.

Maintain healthy habits:

Looking after yourself is critical. Do your best to stay active when you can, eat a balanced diet, and get plenty of sleep.

Manage stress:

Talk to a trusted friend or relative, go for a walk, or meditate. Your mental well-being is just as important as your physical health.
