Caregiver Stress Relief Photo of the Week: Summer on Lake Michigan

How calm, beautiful and relaxing the water can be.  Caregivers provide companionship to seniors, and caregivers must remember to "care for the caregiver."  This week's photo was taken along Lake Michigan in Wisconsin this summer. Take a moment to breathe deeply and let the stress fade away. Please enjoy and feel free to share this photo and inspirational quote with your loved ones. Caregivers know the realities of caregiver stress, and we can help you relieve that stress. Thank you for all you do, and have a great week.

Caregiver Stress Relief Photo of the Week: Misty English Morning

Hopefully you were able to enjoy a fun and festive holiday with your friends and family.  Caregivers can take time to relax and we invite you to take a moment to yourself with this week's photo.  It was taken in Oxfordshire, England on a morning walk, just as the mist was starting to lift and signaling the beginning of a beautiful day. Thank you, caregivers and certified nursing aides for all that you do for your our seniors. More caregivers are always needed as seniors in America are living longer. You can learn more about becoming a senior caregiver and apply for a job near you. Have a great week.

MapMyRun App Suggests Run Routes, Tracks Progress: Caregiverlist Senior Care App Review

Exercise, particularly cardio, provides stress relief and fitness for senior caregivers to maintain health. The MapMyRun app makes it easy for anyone to start running and track their progress over time by offering suggested routes using GPS and tracking distance run, time and calories burned. 

Running provides a great exercise option because it allows the user to set the pace of the activity, so caregivers can start out their training regime by alternating between walking and running and then build up to more vigorous and continual running as their endurance improves. Caregivers can select a suggested running route from those built into the app with set mile lengths such as roughly 2.5 or 5 miles, or they can simply start running and the GPS function on their phone will pick up on the route as they run. 

The Live Tracking option that can be enabled allows users and their friends within the app to see the progress of the run as it takes place. Once a run is complete, the app provides stats including overall distance, duration and pace. Users also have the ability to enter a run into the system after it has occurred if they were unable to use their phone to log it as they ran. 

Listening to music during a workout can help motivate the runner, so the app also allows users to select a playlist to play while they run without having to switch back and forth from MapMyRun to the music app on their phone. Once users begin to log runs on a regular basis, they can look at their log of runs and see how their health and endurance have improved. The paid version of the app also includes extra features, such as a coaching function to help encourage runners and assist them in getting the most out of their workout.

MapMyRun is available for Apple and Android platforms. 

Senior caregivers, let us know your feedback on this app and keep us posted if you discover additional apps that assist with caregiving duties and help relieve caregiver stress. You may also refer-a-friend to a senior caregiving job and win prizes weekly and monthly on Caregiverlist.
