Una Guia para Cuidadores

“Cuidar de uno mismo es fundamental si cuidas de un ser querido,” dijo una hija que cuida de su madre. Aunque es muy fácil decirlo, la aceptación e integración de este consejo puede ser mucho más difícil. Muchos cuidadores no tienen el tiempo para pensar en más que las tareas que les esperan cada mañana y se olvidan de incluir tiempo para sí mismos en la lista de cosas que necesitan hacer durante el día.

FAQ: "More Help"

Getting Sibling Help with Caregiving

Q: My siblings are of little help to me in taking care of our father, who has Alzheimer's. We all live in the same town. How can I get more help – even just moral support or an occasional visit – from them?

ANSWER:

A Guide to Taking Care of Yourself

"The care you give to yourself is the care you give to your loved one," said a caregiver. Absolutely the easiest thing for someone to say and the hardest thing to accept is the advice to take care of yourself as a caregiver. It is often hard to see beyond the care tasks that await you each morning.

Una Visita al médico

Alguna vez le ha ocurrido que salió de la oficina del médico sin respuestas a sus preguntas, o con el sentimiento de que el médico no le escuchó? Hoy en día los médicos tienen muchos pacientes y poco tiempo, y si el paciente no demanda que su médico se tome el tiempo necesario para responder a todas sus preguntas, muchas veces no lo hará. Idealmente una visita al médico debería involucrar comunicación entre el paciente y el médico, y un reparto de información educativa sobre la salud.
