Both of my parents experienced lengthy illnesses before they died, and many families have large responsibilities to care for aging parents. It can be very stressful. http://www.cincinnati.md/oh/cincinnati/topic-tp23660/care%20for%20aging%20parents/palliative_care .  It is important to recognize that issue and make accommodations for yourself.



-         You have to care for your own health. If you get run down to the point of getting sick yourself, you will be of no help to anyone. Eat clean, exercise regularly, and set some time aside for you each week.

-          Ask for help from others. Speak up to family, friends, or community groups for periodic breaks. You’re not superhuman. No one can do it all on their own

-          Find a support group. Whether that is a friend, your family, or an organization such as the Wellness Community (if your family member has cancer). Talking with others that understand your isolation or stress can be a big relief for you.

There are nearly 66 million Americans who care for aging, seriously ill, or disabled family members or friends (EverydayHealth.com).  There are unique issues for you and answers in a variety of places (even Medicare has hotlines). Seek them out. Protect yourself because the person you care for needs you.
