In her book “Renewed” Lucille addresses the many facets of what you can do to better care for yourself.
This is a very important part of survival for an unpaid family caregiver. Caregivers who are sons, daughters, spouses, and friends looking after the health and wellbeing of a loved one who is chronically ill, terminally ill, or disabled. Please check out her workbook http://lucillezimmerman.com/2013/07/15/study-guide-pdf-for-my-book-renewed/
Just a note for family caregivers — I understand that many of you can’t leave the house, you’re on duty 24 hours a day, and totally exhausted. What’s great about this workbook is that it has many activities that you can do at your own pace in your own space. Go for it! Just try to do what you can for yourself. You need to stay healthy and sane.
