Taking Care of Ourselves – HC professionals

Legendary hospice nurse Barbara Karnes recently posted about taking care of ourselves.  Though her blog post is directed to healthcare professionals, here four points apply to all type of caregivers, even family caregivers.  Her four tips include:  finding a listener; journaling; cleansing; and recognizing grief.  Brain Support Network (www.brainsupportnetwork.org) runs local caregiver-only support groups, which are great places to find listeners.
