Stress Relief for Male Caregivers


  Here are some tips especially for you. 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” www.alzheimersplaybook.com Especially good for male caregivers. Although it is written for Alzheimer’s it applies equally well to any illness.

    I really like this tip! I went to a barber and got the full treatment for the very first time last week. Boy did those hot towels feel good and besides getting a great haircut I came away with alot of my stree gone.
    Thanks Joy.
