Videos about looking after yourself

Looking after yourself as a carer

When you’re fully focused on caring for someone, your own needs may seem a lower priority. You might neglect your own health, or see less of your friends and family. This video looks at suggestions for maintaining your health and well-being when you have caring responsibilities.

Looking after your relationships

When you’re caring for someone with dementia, whether that be a partner, parent, other relative or friend, sometimes the dementia can get in the way of the relationship itself. This video investigates ways to look past the dementia and see the person themselves.

Coping with feelings of guilt

This is totally normal but there are things you can do to make sure the guilt doesn’t overwhelm you.
