(HealthDay News) -- Caregiving for a loved one can be very rewarding. But it doesn't come without stress and anxiety.

  • Accept help from friends and family.
  • Join a support group for caregivers.
  • Organize tasks by making lists and establishing a daily routine.
  • Spend personal time with family and friends.
  • Exercise, eat well and get enough sleep.
  • Visit your doctor for regular checkups.
