Providing care for a loved one is common practice for millions of Americans. It is also common for family caregivers to suffer the negative impacts that can affect their everyday well-being. Informal caregivers often experience high levels of stress, lack of sleep, and poor health. This impacts their careers, families, and even the ones receiving care.

24 Hour Care - Elderly Home Care

At Assisting Hands, we offer respite care services in Park Ridge, IL and the Chicago suburbs to give informal caregivers a much-deserved break. We will work around your schedule so you can have the time off you need.

The Effects of Informal Caregiving

By “informal caregivers”, we refer to those providing care to a loved one. A common example is an adult caring for their aging parent. In many cases, these situations lead to a variety of negative effects that should be brought to light as early as possible. If you find yourself in the role of “informal caregiver”, we encourage taking the following points into consideration:

  • Out of the 65 million+ Americans who provide informal caregiving services for a loved one, roughly 25% are in poor health themselves.
  • Roughly 2/3 of all informal caregivers are women.
  • Lack of sleep, increased responsibilities, and added stress are the primary contributors to poor health. They can impact careers, families, and even the quality of care administered.

By recognizing these statistics, we hope you can better manage your schedule and expectations, and prepare for the road ahead. We can help you as much as needed with respite care services.
