I help family caregivers and sandwich family caregivers get some rest and feel less lonely.
Family caregivers and sandwich family caregivers get the message that we don’t have permission to set boundaries, ask for help, get more rest, and take care of ourselves. And it’s a big fat lie. Join the community to talk about it now.
Signs that you could need rest, community and boundaries
You feel resentful, rushed, run down, irritated, grumpy, overwhelmed, overlooked, dismissed or taken for granted;
You are exhausted or burned out;
You are putting your own life or career on hold so you can take care of other people;
You can’t make your own health and rest a priority;
You can’t be yourself in relationships; or
You just can’t get a break from the emotional labor
