Care Partner:
Caring for Yourself

As important as the care you provide to your family or friend with CKD is the care you take of yourself. Keeping the caring in balance, and attending to your own health and feelings is Job One.

  • Take Care of Yourself
  • As a care partner, caring for yourself is as important as caring for the person with CKD.
  • Recognize Burnout
  • Balancing your and your partner's needs is essential for both you as care partner and the person with CKD.
