4 Suggestions For Handling Expectations As A
Caregiver

For people who are expecting to become a
Caregiver very soon or in the near future, health
professionals from across the nation have done
research and studies, and have come up with a few
suggestions for managing the potential tension
and struggle of becoming a Caregiver. On The
Sunrise Blog, here is their list of four helpful
suggestions that health professionals have made
to help people providing care for their loved
ones

1. AARP noted that when Caregivers dwell on
expectations they cant meet for their loved
ones, it has the potential to fill them with
negativity. For ex Focus on making the most of
the time you do spend with your aging family
member instead of worrying about the days you
cant be there. Plan fun activities for your
family members to show you are committed to
supporting them and that you are looking forward
to it. Putting energy into these realistic
expectations will keep you positive as a
caregiver.

2. If you as a Caregiver or someone you know is a
Caregiver and you notice their health is
negatively impacted by stress of the situation,
suggest help, a local support group, and have
resources available to them in the waiting room.
Asking for help from family or close friends
first is a good idea first.   3. As a caregiver,
keep your own well-being in mind as you support
your loved ones. Give yourself credit, prioritize
and reserve a few hours a week to relax and be in
a healthy state of mind to properly support your
loved one.

4. Focus on the big picture so you dont get
caught up in the daily stresses. Remind yourself
of how your parents dedicated his or her time to
take care of you will encourage patience in these
frustrating moments. Empathize with your
relatives because one day, this may be you.
Communicating this to your family members makes
it easier to accept the limitations of what
caregivers can do. And we here at Imperial Club

one transition to our assisted living facility,
