Caregiving is a hard job with little recognition and lots of stress. How are you handling it?
AARP has an interactive Caregiver Stress Quiz that will allow you to answer a few questions, and it will make recommendations based on your answers. It’s a great way of finding out if you’re going through normal amounts of stress – or if you should find ways of relieving your stress.
The best way to relieve stress is to ask for a helping hand once in awhile. Your parents or loved one may rely on you for a lot of things. But in order to keep yourself healthy, it’s important to ask for help when you need it.
When you’re finished taking the Caregiver Stress Quiz, make sure you read the Managing The Stress: Tips For The Caregiver article . It will offer you additional ways to help you get through your busy, ever changing days.
