Caregiver Tip # 2: It’s Okay to Ask For Help

Everyone needs help at times. It’s okay to ask for help and to take time for yourself. Try these helpful tips below:

  • I can ask people to help out in specific ways like making a meal, visiting the person, or taking the person for a short time.
  • I will join a support group to share advice and understanding with other caregivers.
  • I will call for help from home health care or adult day care services when I need it.
  • I will use national and local resources to find out how to pay for some of this help. Such as: ramp building, home safety devices, transportation, etc.
  • I don’t have to do everything myself.
