New Carers: Tips and Advice

New to caring? Here’s some tips and advice for carers, from carers. You’re not alone – each day, 6,000 people start caring.

  1. “Recognise that you are a carer – even if you don’t like the word”

Recognise yourself as a carer, even if you don’t like the word and its connotations. Contact Carers UK and find your local carers organisation. Don’t feel like you’ve got to do it all alone – talk to people and get support.

  1. “Take things one step at a time”

For many of us caring is a whole new world. We go into it with no idea of how much information we will need to gather and absorb, Take things one step at a time.

  1. “Keep calm”

You might be dealing with a different condition or illness but there will still be many times when freaking out about it is not going to help. Keep calm and carry on as the saying goes.

  1. “Be kind to yourself – it’s ok to have a bad day”

Try to have a bit of me time. Find your local carers centre and find out all the support that is available to you. It’s ok to ask for support and it’s ok to have a bad day.

  1. Above all, remember you’re doing the best you can, sometimes with no support.

Don’t forget how strong you are or how many memories and fun days you’re creating with your family. You will get through it.

  1. Prioritise!

Sometimes the caring role can take over and we forget the relationship we have. Forget about the house looking untidy or a few dishes in the sink, and have a least a few minutes of enjoyment – even if it’s just sitting together with a cup of tea as husband and wife, not as carer and ill person.

  1. And it’s ok as a carer to put yourself first sometimes.

It makes a change to chat to someone different, and everyone needs a break from caring at some point.

Join the Carers UK community of carers who understand just what it means to care, visit the Carers UK online forum.

If you are a new carer and need some advice and help with dressing then do take a look at our www.adaptawear.com website.  We sell a range of men’s and ladies daywear and nightwear to help getting dressed easier and less painful for both the wearer and carer.  Our adaptive clothing are ideal for arthritis, stroke, Parkinson, incontinence and dementia sufferers as well as people of all ages who struggle with buttons and zips.

Summer Safety Tips for the Elderly

With the summer months upon us, it’s critical for everyone, and especially vulnerable people like the elderly, to stay hydrated and keep cool. As we age, we should be more aware of the potential health risks that are uniquely associated with both our age and the changing seasons.

10 Summer Health Tips For Elderly

  1. Drink plenty of liquids. Drink eight or more 8-ounce glasses per day of water and/or fruit juices every day to stay hydrated.
  2. Avoid caffeinated and alcoholic beverages. Alcohol, caffeine, coffee and even tea can leave you dehydrated quickly. If at all possible, try to reduce the amount of these beverages, especially during hot weather. Plain or flavoured water is a good substitute.
  3. Dress appropriately. Wear loose-fitting clothes in natural fabrics like cotton. Dress in light colours that will reflect the sun and heat instead of darker colours that will attract them.
  4. Sunblock. When outdoors, protect your skin from damage by wearing hats, sunglasses and a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher.
  5. Stay indoors during extreme heat. In extreme heat and high humidity, evaporation is slowed and the body must work extra hard to maintain a normal temperature.
  6. Air conditioning. If you do not have air conditioning in your home, go somewhere that does. A cinema, shopping centre or a friend or relative’s home or a community senior centre are all good options.
  7. Avoid extreme outdoor heat. If you need to get out of the house and don’t drive, call a taxi or a friend. Do NOT wait outside for the bus in extreme heat.
  8. Take a cool shower or bath. If you are absolutely unable to leave the house and do not have air conditioning, take a cool bath or shower to lower your body temperature on extremely hot days.

At Adaptawear we have a wide range of adapted clothing summer wear available including a few below:
