Live in the moment. In the end, it's all we have.
Caregivers often feel a sense that they are not doing enough to help a loved one who is moving into a care facility. The truth is that as a caregiver, you are doing enough and your loved one will be OK. Remember to take some time for yourself and breath.
Adult Day Care
Adult day care, also called senior daycare, is an option for a growing number of people. While adult day care is a relatively new service in most areas, it fills a valuable middle ground for adults who need some supervision and social activity during the day, but who are not ill enough to need constant medical attention.
In Home Care
As our population ages more and more companies are offering care services to house bound, but otherwise functioning adults. These companies send care providers to your home to help with cooking, housework, doctor visits as well as companionship so loved ones are looked after while you can't be there.
