Caring for someone living with dementia can be very rewarding, but it can also be extremely demanding – both physically and emotionally. The needs of the person you care for may increasingly have to come before your own. It can be hard to find time to take a break or even to arrange for someone to help you.
However, looking after yourself is important – not only for your own health and wellbeing, but also for your relationship with the person you care for.
