Family Caregiver Stress
A major component of our service model is education for adult children to reduce their own stress around caring for their parent. If you are performing some of the caregiving yourself, and experiencing “caregiver burnout”, we can provide suggestions on how to make your life manageable again. If you are living a long distance from your parent, we can provide the peace of mind that they are being properly cared for. In addition, we continually update you on the developmental stage of your parent as we monitor their status on a regular basis and make sure to modify the care plan accordingly.
One of the most common issues raised by adult children who contact us is parental resistance to accepting care. In many cases, parents are resistant to accepting the level of care they need to remain safely in their home. We are able to consult with you to enable you to achieve the balance between your parent’s wishes being met and keeping them at a safe level of care at home.
