Caring for an aging loved one can be a rewarding experience, but it can also be emotionally and physically exhausting. As much as you would like to be there for your loved ones 24/7, you also have other responsibilities that demand your time and energy. That's where respite care comes in. Respite care services provide temporary relief for caregivers from their daily care responsibilities. In this blog post, you'll learn about five signs that indicate respite care might be a good option for you and your aging loved one.
I have a passion for seniors. When I was growing up, my granny was my best friend. She helped me with my homework every day after school and was always ready to lend an ear when I needed someone to talk to. As I grew older and my grandmother did as well, she developed dementia. My parents, siblings, and I all took turns visiting her home to give her the extra care she needed. I learned a lot during this experience and know there are others out there with elderly relatives they are already caring for or suspect may need some extra care. I decided to create a blog to share my senior care tips with anyone and everyone who needs the advice. Come back often for new posts!
