Caregivers: Are You Taking Care Of You In order To Take Care Of Others?

elderly couple 1

15 Tips for reducing stress and promoting health for family and friends who providing the caregiving:

 

  1. Take a break from caregiving.
  2. Make a date to go to the movies, take a walk, meet a friend for lunch. Everyone needs to get out of the house once in a while.
  3. Do something not related to caregiving.
  4. Get support. Attend a support group, have a friend you can call just to let off steam and complain.
  5. Depression is treatable. Talk to your doctor about it. Or seek counseling.
  6. Practice communication and behavior management skills if you are caring for someone with dementia.
  7. Relax. Read a book, meditate, pray, garden, knit, get a massage, take a long bath.
  8. Take care of your health. Go to the doctor, get routine exams and flu shots, get enough sleep and eat your fruits and vegetables.
  9. Change “guilt” to “regret.” Guilt means you did something wrong, regret is that you are in a difficult situation and sometimes you have to make difficult decisions, but they are not wrong.
  10. Forgive yourself — often.
  11. You cannot be a perfect caregiver, all day, every day.
  12. Laugh. Find ways to keep your sense of humor by sharing a silly story with a friend, watching a funny show or movie, or join a group to try laughter yoga exercises.
  13. Exercise. Walk around the neighborhood. Or even better, recruit a friend to walk with you.
  14. Sign up for an online or in-person yoga class. Join a Zumba class or line dancing class.
  15. Ask for and accept help when offered.
  16. No one can do this alone.

Isn’t it time you finally enjoyed life and let someone else handle the rest?

Today’s lifestyles are far too hectic to get everything done yourself. The idea of being a superhero adult is simply a fantasy. The reality is you work hard for what you have, and your free time should be spent recharging your batteries and enjoying your life. That’s where CC Home Concierge Co. comes in.

A concierge is much more than simply an assistant person. It’s someone who is a home manager, home organizer and an organizer of time, a person who fully understands that you work hard and has very little time to take care of all the non-priority tasks that take over your To-Do lists.

CCHC services are personalized to your specific requirements, and ultimately end up saving you both time and money.

fast_five_logoA Clean & Tidy space is only a few mini projects away. Here are 5 fast tips for helping you keep your space sparkling and organized.

  1. Dishwasher is not just for dishes: Go around the house and collect the toys, soap dishes, car cup holders, sponges, pet dishes, dish racks. Put them all in the dishwasher and send them through a clean cycle.
  2. Wear The Glove Around The House: I have an extra pair of rubber gloves (label them) that I wear around house to wipe down furniture, pillows, blankets, lamp shades, stuffed animals, baseboards, door trims, small area rugs, and table clothes to get crumbs off.
  3. Gather up your wagon partner: Grab a wagon and wheel around to every room to pick up the belongings that need to be placed back to their home.
  4. Hang Coats: Hang all the coats laying around the house, and straighten up the shoes and boots by your entry door.
  5. Make The Bed: It will be your first task of the day, it will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task and then another task. It’s a reminder that the little things do matter.

Professional cleaning services know what works and will provide the appropriate products for your home’s needs.
  3. More time to do what matters most to you – If you want more time to spend with family, having a professional cleaning service for your home will allow you to enjoy experiences and make new memories. If you want a little time for your own pursuits, having a professional cleaning service will free up the time you need to spend on hobbies, classes, educational pursuits or volunteering.
  4. Less fatigue – If you are like most families today, keeping up with the demands of work, children, and your adult parents you are exhausted. A professional cleaning service will allow you to get a little more rest so you can enjoy your time off with family and friends, instead of spending your energy on cleaning the home.
  5. Consistent results – Professional Home Cleaners will ensure that your home is sparkling clean, week after week, regardless of the other events that are going on in your life. Your home will be cleaned consistently and will be ready for company, unscheduled guests or those other spur-of-the-moment events and activities, regardless of how busy the rest of your life is.
  6. Healthy home – A professional cleaning service can help alleviate allergies, do you know that 50% of the population in America have some various type of allergies? allergies to dust is the most common allergy.

Consider the many benefits of having a professional cleaning service, and you will soon see why so many people now contract their home cleaning tasks to others, so they can spend more time and energy on more enjoyable activities.
