In our most recent session of the Together We! Thrive series, our speaker Ayla Cook, Senior Care Specialist, shared valuable information for caregivers about setting boundaries. COVID-19 has increased the demand for services for those in support or caregiving roles. By practicing healthy boundary setting, we are able to better manage our tasks, our care for others and our self-care. Watch the live recording of “Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No” on Facebook, where you can watch and listen to the discussion about how to use boundaries to create positive interactions with others and build healthy rules for ourselves.
What are Boundaries?
Boundaries are limits we set in order to create a healthy sense of personal space. They help us identify where we end and others begin. They also help us identify responsibilities that do and don’t belong to us.
5 types of boundaries include:
Personal: Focuses on limits we set for ourselves and others we are in relationship with.
Financial: Limitations around financial interactions.
Professional: Help prevent line between person’s career and personal from becoming blurred.
Time: Assist with determining how much of your personal, professional, and physical resources you would like to offer.
Physical: Protect our body, privacy, and personal space.

"When we moved to Holly Creek we thought about what is visible, such as interiors, apartment layout, dining areas, which are all very nice but after living here for a year we have discovered what is most important is the people that live here and employees, who are all so considerate and kind who are at the HEART of Holly Creek. They make Holly Creek a special place in which to live."
