In this episode: Importance of asking for help, key mental shifts to thrive as a caregiver
If you are a caregiver who once thought they could do it all, this episode is for you! On this occasion we discussed why caregivers don’t ask for help and what are the consequences of that attitude.
Our guest Suzanne White talks about how trying to do everything perfectly when she became a primary caregiver for her mother turned out to be a perfect recipe for a burnout.
She outlined the approach that helped her change the status quo. In her ebook ‘The Caregiver’s Little Guide to survival’ she outlines specific strategies to help people navigate caregiving and thrive.
During our discussion we highlighted an important mental shift that you as a caregiver need to make in order to thrive and various tips on how to top up your emotional bank account.
Last, Evan shared a comprehensive healthy eating resource to help you maintain your kidney health which includes nutrients info, cooking & shopping guides.
