SaddleBrooke Neurological Support Group

The holiday season is over, and we are getting back to the reality of life. If we had a chance as caregivers to forget who we are, what we have to do, and how to be the best for our loved ones suffering with a neurological disorder, time moves forward.

Join us for tips on how you can overcome the often stressful times of your life and create a beautiful and meaningful experience, even starting new traditions and looking forward to a new year. So, with optimism, faith that all can be better in our lives while caring for our impaired loved one, we ask you to join our group each month, on the second Saturday of the month, from 10 a.m. to noon in the SaddleBrooke One Arts and Crafts Room 4. Future dates are Jan. 8, Feb. 12, and March 19.

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

1. Breathe.

2. Drink water, lots.

3. Nourish your body with healthy choices.

4. Sleep; try to get five to six hours of shuteye.

5. Move your body. Do some exercise each day while preparing a meal. Jump or stretch, as an example.

6. It is equally important to take a break. It’s important to have your time. Ask a friend to stay an hour or two.
