Taking care of someone with cerebral palsy (CP) demands a great deal of time, energy, and resources. As such, parents, loved ones, and care-givers of individuals with CP are more likely to become stressed and exhausted.
To help you fight the threat of exhaustion or too quickly being overwhelmed, consider the ABCs of taking care of oneself:
- A – Acknowledge that taking care of someone with a lifelong condition such as cerebral palsy can be hard, and that it is normal to be upset at times
- B – Build a strong support system by seeking out people and organizations with the same situation as yours
- C – Consider getting time off by getting help from family members, friends, or paid providers
Cerebral palsy is a condition that can, unfortunately, be a result of medical malpractice and negligence. To learn more about your eligibility in filing for a civil claim against the parties involved, consult with an attorney at the Driscoll Firm by calling (800) 305-9800 today.
