Both caregivers and care recipients crs need to be heard and appreciated for who they are in their current situations

Try: #often people feel lonely when they are in situations that physically isolate them from others or when they feel they are alone in what they are experiencing #caregivers may feel lonely while providing care to spouses or parents while cr’s may feel lonely moving through stages of loss and changes related to disability #take time to truly connect with other people if you are a caregiver schedule time to take care of yourself and protect that time #make sure that more than a cr’s physical needs are met it can be difficult in the pressure of providing physical care to find the energy to provide emotional support for this reason alone it is often a good idea to get help providing care and to set aside time to simply enjoy the cr’s company cr’s need kindness as well as physical care #make sure the cr spends time with people who can give regular deeply appreciative time regular visits from an understanding friend family member community volunteer or clergy person may add to the cr’s enjoyment of life
