Get Support if You Are a Caregiver 


Take Action!

Take these steps to lower the stress of caregiving.

Take care of yourself.
Caregiving can be stressful. Stress can lead to back pain and trouble sleeping. Taking care of yourself will give you the energy and strength to handle the demands of caregiving.

Take care of your body.

  • Eat healthy to keep your body strong and active. Make smart food choices to help protect yourself from heart disease, bone loss, and high blood pressure.
  • Get active to help you make it through the day. Aim for 2 hours and 30 minutes a week of moderate aerobic activity, like walking fast or dancing.
  • Take steps to prevent back pain, like keeping your back straight when you lift something heavy.
  • Make sure you get enough sleep. Most adults need 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night.
