Caring for Elders During the Holidays

Are you the primary caregiver for a parent, grandparent, ill spouse/partner, or child with special needs? We understand this can sometimes make life feel stressful and overwhelming. The WorkLife Office has put together the following tips to help make this season a smooth one for all.

  • Maintain daily routines, meal times and habits
  • Plan ahead. Dinners, travel and other tasks that need to get done
  • Ask for help and input from loved ones
  • Keep your sense of humor. Laugh, don’t cry when mistakes happen
  • Put down your technology and fully engage with the people around you

Lastly, take care of you. Carve out time each day to reflect, relax and practice gratefulness for the joys in your life.
