“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” —Helen Keller

So, with that optimism, and faith that all can be better in our lives while caring for our neurologically impaired loved ones, we gathered on Dec. 9 at the SaddleBrooke One Arts and Crafts Center to hear speaker Amanda Gelatt from A Senior Journey, Senior Living Placement. She has been experienced in adult health care for many years and is passionate about her work, ensuring that each client receives the best service, recommendations, and education that fits their situation. There is never a charge for her assistance. Her first goal is to help place you or your loved ones into living arrangements that suit all your needs, physically and financially.

We encourage the caregiver to be physically and emotionally well by doing what will not only help you to maintain your health but will also improve your attitude toward your loved one. So, please:

1. Breathe.

2. Drink lots of water.

3. Nourish your body with healthy choices.

4. Sleep. Try to get six or seven hours of shuteye. We know this can sometimes be very difficult.

5. Move your body to do some exercise each day. For example, while preparing a meal, jump and stretch.

6. It is equally important to take a break. It’s important to get time away from your loved one. Ask someone to stay with them for an hour or two.
