Take care of yourself to ensure you have the mindset needed to serve others.
Liz Johnson is the owner and Care Planning Consultant for Seniors at Always Best Care Bergen & Passaic. She shares critical healthcare information and resources for seniors.
When family members become ill, guilt and heavy emotional burdens can make handling the situation problematic.
The key is to practice self-care during these challenging times so we can show up as our best selves and take on the responsibility of being there to serve our family members in need.
Understanding the nuances of the healthcare system and how it applies to helping our aging loved ones can be a difficult and emotional journey, so we must seek professional help and resources.
Take care of yourself to be the hero your aging loved ones need!
