Find out why self-care is important for your health and wellbeing, and how it can support you to provide quality palliative care to older people.

ELDAC Self-care

Looking after people who are coming towards the end of their life can have an impact on how you act and feel. Practising self-care can help you maintain your physical, mental and emotional well-being so you can continue to care.

The Self-Care campaign invites you to commit to positive steps for your wellbeing, so you can keep providing compassionate care.

We encourage you to download and share these resources and to reflect on the steps you can take towards self-care. You can also share your feedback and thoughts in the quiz below.

You can also visit the ELDAC Self-Care Room to help you get started in your self-care journey.
