Have you ignored your own health since starting on this caregiving journey? When was the last time you saw your family doctor or dentist?
According to a study conducted by Bei Wu, PhD, Huabin Luo, PhD, and Lu Qin, MA, the more hours a person spends caregiving, the less likely it is they will see their dentist for a yearly exam or even a dental cleaning.
Do you have a trusted friend or family member who can spend a couple of hours with your loved one, so that you can see your dentist? Make that appointment for your own wellbeing!
