Balancing Caregiving, Family and Work

Caring for a loved one is a lot of work. Now add in other family members that you are caring for and a full-time job. You may feel tugged in different directions and feel as though you can’t give 100 percent anywhere.

Along with utilizing community resources and/or getting others involved to help, you could talk to your employer about what is available for you as an employee. A few things to ask about: Employee Assistance Program, Small Necessities Leave and the new Massachusetts Sick Leave Law.

As always, take care of yourself. You cannot care for others if you are not healthy!
