Take some time for yourself

You cannot spend all day caring for your parents, in-laws or grandparents, this work will last a long time is not a short career, so this does not mean that you are a terrible person or selfish, but you also need to satisfy your social needs, recreational, playful, etc., this is known in our sector as family respite.

Take one or two hours each day to do what you like most, as much as possible outside the home and not in the company of the older adult you care for. If you do not have anyone else to help you, hire someone to stay a few hours in the house, and you can do what you want.
