When senior citizens get to the point where they require help on a daily basis to get through their day, a great number of families take it upon themselves to provide care for them. Whether one or several members of your family provide care for your elderly loved one, it is a still a demanding task because of the time and energy involved. Family members, understandably, may feel guilty when seeking outside caregiving help; however, outside help from a home care agency is very beneficial to both your elderly relatives and family caregivers. Assisting Hands Home Care can help family caregivers in Elk Grove Village, IL area , and give them a break through our respite care services.
With our respite care services, family caregivers will be relieved of their responsibilities by one of our trained caregivers at scheduled intervals. By doing this, the family caregiver gets a break to rest, relax, and take care of their personal matters. With the demanding nature of caregiving, family caregivers should consider getting respite care for their loved ones:
- Informal care is provided by 65 million Americans.
- Family caregivers are mostly women, accounting for two-thirds of them.
- One-fourth of family caregivers are stressed, lack sleep, and/or suffer from other similar issues that hinder their health.
Because of the demands of the informal care they provide to a loved one, family caregivers’ health and personal lives often suffer. It is a good idea for a family member to provide care for an elderly individual because of their familiarity with each other; however, the family caregiver needs to be able to have personal time and rest to avoid becoming overly stressed and fatigued. That said, it is not healthy for family caregivers to provide informal care without some assistance.
