Don’t feel guilty

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Care in Kent -

Feel­ing guilty is nor­mal - but not nec­es­sary.

If you’re a carer – it’s es­sen­tial that you also care about your­self. Be­ing a good carer does not mean you should never ad­mit that you need a break, a change of scene or that you’d like some time to your­self. In fact, while it’s to­tally nor­mal to feel guilty about th­ese things, but it’s ac­tu­ally ex­tremely im­por­tant that car­ers do look af­ter their own needs too – and that means hav­ing some time off, even if it’s just a few hours to go for a walk, en­joy a hobby, or sim­ply have a bath, eat a meal and watch TV un­in­ter­rupted.
