Family Caregiver Bill Of Rights
At some point in your life you may find yourself as a “family caregiver”. This is a role we take on in our family because someone you love requires emotional or physical care at home.
It could be for your parents, spouse, children, and even a friend. This is a responsibility that will affect you emotionally and physically. Their needs will start to come before your own.
What is difficult to remember is that you need to take care of yourself first, in order to care for others. To help you take care of yourself and set guidelines take a look at The Family Caregiver Bill of Rights from Liz O’Donnell the Founder of Working Daughter.
Enlist help from family members, friends, and your community so that you are not alone in your role of family caregiver. Sit down and make a plan and don't be afraid to take time for yourself so that are able to provide patient, kind and loving care for your family member.
