September 10 minute advocate

September is “Provider/Caregiver Appreciation Month”

Tell or show your legislator how your caregiver/staff assist you, and the struggles to get good staff.  Offer to tour a facility that offers care for persons with disabilities.  It can be any facility.  If you do not want to host a tour invite a facility to do it.

The Washington County Family to Family Network hosted a Caregivers Wellbeing and Empowerment class on September 11th. Some of our favorite parts of this training was the practical everyday application of stress relief ideas.  Here are some of our favorites:

  • Work on things you can control!  Some of these are practicing good sleep habits and eating a healthy diet.
  • Caregivers tools: Contemplative Arts and Expressive Arts.  Relaxation and contemplation, Meditation, express yourself through music, exercise or art.
  • The benefits of journaling.  Words heal.
  • Ritual.  Having order and clarity in times of change and relief and comfort in times of anxiety.
  • Advocacy!  This brings us back to this months goal, reach out to your legislator and let them know about how having a staff helps you and how important it is as a caregiver!
