The 8 Laws of Healthy Caregiving were actually developed in 2003 by the Compassion Fatigue Awareness Project and are simple reminders designed to help you as a caregiver promote healthier change in your life and practice better self care.
#1 – Sustain Your Compassion
#2 – Retain Healthy Skepticism
#3 – Learn to Let Go
#4 – Remain Optimistic
#5 – Be the Solution
#6 – Embrace Discernment
#7 – Practice Sustainable Self Care
#8 – Acknowledge Your Successes
This week, as you continue to strive to be a healthy caregiver, try to keep these 8 simple rules in mind. Remember, you can reach out to the Alzheimer’s Care Resource Center 24 hours per day/7 days a week. We are always here for you.
