Managing Stress #9 and #10
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

#9:  Give yourself credit, not guilt.

Know that the care you provide does make a difference and you are doing the best you can. You may feel guilty because you can’t do more, but individual care needs change as Alzheimer’s progresses. You can’t promise how care will be delivered, but you can make sure that the person with Alzheimer’s is well cared for and safe.

#10:  Visit your doctor regularly.

Take time to get regular checkups, and be aware of what your body is telling you. Pay attention to any exhaustion, stress, sleeplessness or changes in appetite or behavior.  Ignoring symptoms can cause your physical and mental health to decline.
