Self-Care is Not Selfish!
Caring for a loved one is both rewarding and challenging.
A physically and emotionally healthy caregiver is a more effective caregiver.
But how can you take care of yourself when you’re so busy taking care of someone else?
Become a conscious caregiver and learn ways to care for your loved one -- and yourself -- at the same time.
Are You a Family Caregiver Struggling with Issues Like These?
I’m Linda Abbit, caregiving specialist, speaker, and author of The Conscious Caregiver.
My goal is to help you become a more knowledgeable, calmer and conscious caregiver
By practicing self-care, you will be calmer and enjoy more quality time with your care recipient.
I created TenderLovingEldercare (TLeC) to guide family caregivers as you travel on your unique caregiving journeys.
How do I know so much about conscious caregiving?
Like you, I was a family caregiver for my parents and other family members.
As a caregiver over the past 25 years, I faced many of the questions and challenges you’re experiencing, or may experience in the future. I've included these challenges, and how to manage them, in my book, The Conscious Caregiver: A Mindful Approach to Caring for Your Loved One Without Losing Yourself.
For many years I worked in the eldercare field and volunteered for the Alzheimer’s Association as a support group facilitator.
I also share my experience and insights in caregiving as a speaker at workshops and events, both online and in person.
In The Conscious Caregiver You’ll Learn How To:
Learn mindfulness techniques and how to apply them in a variety of caregiving situations.
Create a Happiness L.I.S.T. and learn other self-care steps to take each day without feeling guilty for putting yourself first.
Be a More Relaxed Caregiver
Learn ways to be a more efficient, relaxed and resilient caregiver, whether you live nearby or far away from your loved one.
