Are you eating enough and getting the nutrients you need?

Be sure to eat regularly, including 3 meals a day and a small snack in between. If you need to increase your appetite, you can
1. Exercise before meals,
2. Add flavour to your food with herbs and spices, and
3. Eat with other people if possible. If you do eat alone and are not motivated to cook, our personal assistants can prepare healthy meals and provide company.

Walking is an easy way to fit some exercise into your day. Make it a habit!
1. Take a walk at lunchtime or for errands, such as the neighborhood bank, store, or post office.
2. Walk a dog or a neighbour’s dog.
3. Put aside a time each day that is convenient for you. You want to enjoy walking, not think of it as a chore.
4. Plan a scenic route that is easy to follow.
5. Prevent injuries by walking slowly to warm up and cool down.

Remember: a short walk every day is better than a tough long walk once a week!

Sometimes care-giving can feel like an endless To-Do List: running extra errands, cooking meals and doing laundry, managing medical tasks ... It’s hard to remember your own needs when you’re taking care of someone else.

You’re not alone. Here are some ideas to better care for your loved one and yourself:
- Learn about care coordination.
- Get additional help and support with care-giving activities.
- Talk to your employer about your working and care-giving commitments.
- Take the time to invest in yourself.
