She has been recognized by the Home & Health Care Association of Massachusetts as Manager of the Year in 1997 and received the Deborah Blumer Community Health Leader Award from the MetroWest Community Health Care Foundation in 2007.

Caregiving MetroWest: Why is it so important for caregivers to make sure that they take care of themselves as well as the loved ones they're caring for? Boyko: Automobiles need gas and clean oil to run effectively, among other things. This analogy can be made to caregiving; if caregivers are running on empty - if they are exhausted, stressed, sick or otherwise running on empty - they will be of little use to the person in their charge. Being responsible for the well-being of a loved one, whether it's an infant or an elder, requires the caregiver to be healthy, alert and available - not easy when you're ill or incapacitated. In fact, according to Family Caregiver Alliance, "women who spend nine or more hours a week caring for an ill or disabled spouse increase their risk of heart disease two-fold. Additionally, "estimates show that between 40 to 70% of caregivers have clinically significant symptoms of depression, with approximately one quarter to one half of these caregivers meeting the diagnostic criteria for major depression." Caregivers are also known to suffer from lack of sleep, feelings of isolation and frustration and are at an increased risk of heart disease, which is the leading cause of death in both men and women, according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). CGMW: Why do many caregivers neglect their own needs and what are some strategies for the people who care about them to get them to care for themselves as well? Boyko: The easy answer to why caregivers neglect their own needs is that they are looking after and caring for a loved one. Others? Boyko: There are many ways for caregivers to take care of themselves and their bodies: • Exercising - it can help to relieve stress and benefit your overall health • Walking - it's a great way to get exercise and clear your head • Eating well - proper nutrition is imperative to your energy levels and overall health; if necessary, speak with a nutritionist to find out what in your diet should stay - and what should go • Staying hydrated - Without proper hydration, your risk of headache, constipation, dizziness and more will increase. How much - and what - should you drink? Water, juice without added sugars and sports drinks are good options to consume throughout the day to keep your energy up and your body hydrated. • Minimizing stress - This can be accomplished through the activities mentioned above as well as by seeking counseling; practicing meditation and/or yoga; and discussing your situation with a physician, who can further recommend additional ways to reduce stress and maintain good health. • Asking for help - Whether it's from other family members, close friends, neighbors or professionals, asking for and accepting help is critical. While many caregivers may feel that they are the only ones who know how to properly care for their loved one, accepting help can ease feelings of resentment, stress and isolation and can provide a caregiver the opportunity to care for themselves. CGMW: What are some of the ways for caregivers to care for themselves emotionally to get the support and stress relief they need? Boyko: Caregiver support groups are a wonderful forum for like-minded individuals in similar situations to share resources, tips and information. Health magazine suggests the following: – Smelling peppermint can make you more energetic. – If you're having trouble sleeping, smelling some lavender oil can "increase(s) brain alpha waves associated with relaxation and deep sleep." – Health reports that a 2013 study found that smelling a combination of lavender, chamomile and neroli can reduce anxiety and ease stress - perfect for a stressed-out caregiver. CGMW: Are there any other thoughts or strategies you would like to share with caregivers to help make sure they are looking after their own needs as well as their loved ones'? Boyko: While caregiving can undoubtedly be stressful, it can also extremely rewarding.
