Taking time for yourself is something that Pat Lake highly recommends to caregivers .
“ It is not selfish ,” she said . “ You have to care for yourself . You can ’ t be a good caregiver unless you take care of yourself . Not taking care of yourself will ultimately lead to feelings of anger , resentment and bitterness and those are not good emotions to feel .”

Lake leads a caregiver support group that meets at 10:30 a . m . on the third Thursday of the month at the Coshocton Public Library .
