Caregiver Wellness: Take Care of Yourself from Morning 'til Midnight
The Alzheimer's Foundation of America compiled this list to fit the nine components of the "Caregiver Wellness: U Model." Eboni Green, Ph.D., RN, co-founder of Caregiver Support Services, Omaha, developed this conceptual model to empower caregivers to achieve optimum wellness. The components are social, psychological, physical, intellectual, spiritual, occupational and financial wellness, plus the empowerment and resilience, or flexibility, necessary for you to take charge of your health on a holistic basis.
It's easy for people to say, "Take care of yourself," but here is a plan that anyone can use, whether moment by moment, or day by day. Download the latest Caregiver Wellness infographic.
