The importance of work/life balance is vital to all relationships, especially a family caregiving relationship. But, what does work/life balance mean to a family that is sharing the caregiving duties of a senior parent?
We hope you’ll join us as we view Home Instead Senior Care’s Part 2 of the 5-Part Video Series that focuses on work/life balance and tips for maintaining balance in your family.
How do you know if your life is out of balance?
1. Do you feel overtired/fatigued? Does this lead to a decrease in your ability to perform your job? Do you find yourself making common mistakes?
2. Are you missing important family events? Are you unable to mark milestones?
3. Are you missing quality time with your friends? Do the demands of home and work keep you from nurturing relationships?
4. Is your job requiring you to work longer hours and assume more responsiblities?
In Part 3 of this video series, you can review suggestions on regaining a strong work/life balance.
