Care recipient (cr) has extreme emotional highs and lows

Try: Try to encourage cr to exercise exercise time will not only keep cr’s body healthy and strong but will also distract him her from thinking too much about stressors which can lead to episodes of emotional highs or lows even just half an hour of jogging or an hour at the gym will usually improve cr’s well-being also make sure that cr gets enough sleep this is a bit trickier than most people think because you obviously cannot simply barge in on cr’s bedroom to check if he she is asleep neither can you monitor his her sleep all night long you can however help regulate sleep by making sure that the cr has already finished most of his her tasks by afternoon and that he she has an early supper this way cr will have enough time for sleep also make sure that you wake up cr early and at the same time each day so that a regular sleeping pattern will form next check on the types of foods that the cr takes in it has been said that a person is what he eats this is partly true because there are various chemical compounds in food that can give feelings of elation such as chocolates or which can possibly make cr depressed such as excessive alcohol make sure that cr eats a balanced meal with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables make sure that cr is able to take in all of the meds on schedule just as important as taking in medication make sure that cr does not overdose on his medications try to reduce the stressors in the environment which can trigger over emotional episodes in cr if cr works make sure that the work atmosphere is relaxed enough to accommodate cr at home also make sure that the family members do not stress cr too much
