If the health care system were a plant
family caregivers would be the roots

Message for CAREgivers:
Take steps towards Life Balance, know the benefits of Self Care and have strategies that decrease stress and increase wellness. Studies have shown that just 30 minutes of regular exercise every day helps you feel better, live longer and be less likely to be hospitalized. It promotes a better quality of life. It is also very helpful for mental health problems such as depression, anxiety and insomnia.
