Caregiver Bill of Rights

As a Caregiver, I have the Right to:heart and hand.jpg

  • To take care of myself. This is not an act of selfishness. It will give me the capability of taking better care of my loved one .

  • To seek help from others. I recognize the limits of my own endurance and strength.

  • To maintain facets of my own life that do not include the person I care for, just as I would if s/he were healthy.

  • To get angry, be depressed, and to express other difficult feelings occasionally.

  • To reject any attempt by my loved one to manipulate me through guilt, anger, or depression.

  • To receive consideration, affection, forgiveness, and acceptance for what I do for my loved one  for as long as I offer these qualities in return.

  • To take pride in what I am accomplishing and to applaud the courage it has sometimes taken to meet the needs of caregiving. 

  • To protect my individuality and my right to make a life for myself that will sustain me in the time when my full-time help may no longer be needed. 

  • To expect and demand that as new strides are made in finding resources to aid physically and mentally impaired older persons in our country, similar strides will be made toward aiding and supporting caregivers.
