Notes For Caregivers #1

"Care For Ourselves" collage by Lani, textures by FlyPaper.
I'd like to add something new to the blog, posts that are specifically for caregivers.  Whether we are art therapists, caring for our patients/clients/artists, or if we are caring for someone at home, my observation is that self care is extremely important. So I will be posting some really helpful ideas, web sites, or videos that have come my way. There is a Canadian web site, Stories For Caregivers, that feels like a life line. I started with Dr. Yvette Lu who has some great ideas to help caregivers find practical solutions to improve their lives.  Ever wondered about flotation therapy? Dr. Lu has an answer.

The website also has a list of resources for caregivers in Canada which led me to a list of resources for caregivers in Ontario. Very helpful.

For those in the US, AARP has a helpful website.
