Providing care for a spouse, or any loved one with Alzheimer’s can be a lonely job. As connections once enjoyed with the patient fade, other relationships often suffer as well from a lack of time and attention.
It’s okay to feel lonely, angry, scared and other uncomfortable things. It’s also okay to want to be happy. Maintaining supportive relationships outside of your caregiving duties gives you someone to share your feelings with, good and bad. And that can bring stress levels down.
Do Something—With Friends
Make it a priority to spend time in the company of others:
- Join a support group (in-person or online) to talk about daily challenges.
- Sign up for a club, team or class to meet others who share your interests.
- Make plans with someone who makes you laugh. You need it!
- If you can’t get out, invite a friend to visit. Your loved one may enjoy the change of pace, too.
If you’re a caregiver and dealing with loneliness, what are some ways you are trying to relieve the stress?
