Stress Relief For MaleCaregivers

Here are some tips especially for you Men. Get a shave in a barber shop where they use hot towels and offer a scalp massage. Have friends over for poker or pool. Find a group of women who can be with your wife or loved one on your night out. Have these women visit another day while you get in a round of golf. Learn something new that has nothing to do with the illness. Become an expert in astronomy or become a wine specialist. Find or start a Men’s Support Group through your church, synagogue or Council on Aging. Be sure and check out the book Coach Broyles’ Playbook for Alzheimer’s Caregivers Tips and Strategies for all stages Although it is written specifically for Alzheimer’s it applies equally well to all illness.
