We’re always told to reduce stress in our lives. Stress raises our risk of heart disease, depression, dementia, digestive disease, sleep problems and a host of other health conditions. But can you recall a more stressful time than we’ve been experiencing as we weather the COVID-19 crisis? For many, it’s more challenging than ever to manage tension. Here are some things we can do—and not do—to lower our stress at this time.
Family caregivers face an extra level of stress these days. Many are working at their own jobs from home. They’re helping their children with remote schooling. They’re scrambling to keep their families healthy. We are so proud that Right at Home caregivers are providing much-needed peace of mind for many of these families.
