Health Tip: Stress-Busting Tips for Caregivers
How to ease the load
(HealthDay News) -- When you're a caregiver, is seems like there aren't enough hours in the day to finish your tasks.
The National Sleep Foundation suggests these stress-busting tips for caregivers:
- If your loved one has Alzheimer's disease, call for extra help in the evenings. The disease can trigger evening confusion and anxiety known as "sundowning."
- Keep any appointments with your doctor, just as you would for the person you're caring for. Talk with your doctor about any sleep problems.
- Exercise daily. This may help you ward off depression and improve your sleep.
