Family caregivers take on an extreme amount of responsibility; often, they become full-time caregivers overnight. The caregiver’s role requires taking care of essential needs your family member needs to survive, everything from cooking and cleaning to managing medications, looking after finances, managing doctor appointments etc… Doing it all for someone you love can be beautiful and fulfilling, but it can also cause fatigue and feelings of guilt or worry!
You don’t have to do it alone, or even feel alone, Check out these local resources for assistance with caregiving. Everything from support groups to financial aid is available to those that qualify.
Statistics have proven, the better the health of the caregiver, the better the care they are able to give. Take advantage of the support available near you. 🙂
