Self Care Checklist from Lucille Zimmerman

Self Care Checklist from Lucille Zimmerman

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.

A special thank you and shout out to Lucille Zimmerman, LPC@LucilleZ  find her on Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/Lucille.Zimmerman.Author/

  1. Hi Patricia,

    We definitely know how it feels to be knee deep in diapers, feeding and other ADLs. The beauty about Lucille Zimmerman is her countenance and her approach to helping persons with all sorts of issues. Ms. Zimmerman has experience treating people in crises, coping with health and midlife issues, eating disorders, struggles related to self-esteem, child abuse, trauma, and marital difficulties.
    We appreciate you and the hard work that you put in as a caregiver. The stress, grief, angst and joy get all jumbled up. That is why we are writing about resilience. I hope you can find a few minutes to read our blogs: Resilience – Part 1 http://caretocaregiver.org/resilience/ and Resilience – Be A Quarterback Part 2 http://caretocaregiver.org/resilience-be-a-quarterback/

    We caregivers need a tough skin and a way to find the moments, a short as they might be, in peace and joy.

    Caregiving is a work of Love… Thank you. With love and gratitude – The Care To Caregiver Team.
