Health Tip: Stress-Busting Tips for Caregivers

(HealthDay News) -- When you're a caregiver, is seems like there aren't enough hours in the day to finish your tasks.

The National Sleep Foundation suggests these stress-busting tips for caregivers:

  • If your loved one has Alzheimer's disease, call for extra help in the evenings. The disease can trigger evening confusion and anxiety known as "sundowning."

  • Keep any appointments with your doctor, just as you would for the person you're caring for. Talk with your doctor about any sleep problems.

  • Exercise daily. This may help you ward off depression and improve your sleep.
