Caring for a loved one also means caring for yourself.

Unpaid or paid care work is both challenging and rewarding. Whether it be someone you love or someone you have just met, caring roles are diverse and maybe for a few hours at a time or day in, day out, 24/7.

Many people in unpaid roles do not identify themselves as carers & may not fully understand the need for self-care. Carers may experience feelings of loneliness, isolation & even resentment.

can feel that their needs should be secondary to the person requiring care & will not seek advice, assistance or additional support. 

When the carer’s needs are ignored, it can have a significant impact on their wellbeing.

So the message is clear, self-care for those in ongoing caring roles is vital, and you must know what resources are available and where to find them. A good starting point is the Head to Health website which has further information, links & resources. The Carers Australia website is also another great place to start.

InPlace Care is a professional care centre with compassionate and educated caregivers and nurses. We always advise our caregivers to take time for self-care and to be refreshed for themselves and the clients.
