- A sense of routine and normality will help both you and the person you are caring for maintain interests which lie outside living with the condition.
- Keeping your sense of humour is also very important. Many carers say that seeing the funny side of things has benefited them and the person they care for enormously. Laughter is very therapeutic and can help everyone to keep things in perspective.
If the person you care for is your partner and your sexual relationships are affected, do seek help and advice from your doctor or healthcare professional. Understanding the possible problems and their causes can help in identifying solutions.
