Caregiving is no easy task (we can ask our parents for confirmation). A caregiver’s day may include transportation, personal assistance, medication management, exercise, meal preparation, and much more. It doesn’t always leave much room for personal obligations, and it can be nearly impossible to manage if you have a job or children.
An often overlooked benefit of home health care is that it gives you a break, too, by lifting the burden from your shoulders. Whether your elder qualifies for 24-hour care or someone is there throughout the day to support the basics of daily living, you’ll find yourself with the freedom to manage your other responsibilities, secure in the knowledge that your loved one’s needs are being met.
