When it is Time to Ask for Help

Caregivers in Mt. Laurel NJ

Caregivers in Mt. Laurel NJAs the primary family caregiver, you are responsible when it comes to caring for your parent and determining their every need. You help create a safe home environment for them. You often prepare their meals, ensuring a healthy and whole diet. You address their schedule to ensure they are getting the care they need and that any support they require with all their daily activities of living is being addressed. It’s a lot for one person to handle. Hopefully, you have a support team in place that can help you with the day-to-day care of your parent so that you can take some time to renew. If you don’t, it may be time to consider some options.

Family and Friends

Put together a schedule that illustrates everything you do during the course of a day. Then pick out a few items that you feel comfortable handing over to friends and family. Perhaps your sister can help out with meal preparation or doing the laundry. Maybe your brother can take one day a week to care for your parent. For those that live a long distance away, it’s possible they can contribute financially, offering support that will help your family obtain the services of someone that can care for your parent when you can’t be there as the family caregiver.

Home Care Provider

You, or your parent, may have qualms about a stranger becoming such a vital part of your loved one’s life. If your loved one is uncomfortable with the thought of obtaining their services, it’s important that they play a part in the selection process—from initial phone consultation to personal interview. A home care provider quickly becomes more than someone to assist with the daily activities of living. They and your parent share close, personal, life events and this closeness quickly becomes evident in their relationship. What started as strangers soon become friends.
Not only do they assist with bathing, dressing, meal preparations and light housekeeping, they offer transportation for errands and to social events. They accompany your parent to places they would rather not go to alone and help them find comfort in their companionship. They help them keep to a healthy schedule by accompanying them on walks or taking them to their exercise classes at the local senior community center. They go grocery shopping, run to the post office, and take them shopping at the mall. They remind them when it’s time to take their medication. They are caring professionals who have supported countless seniors in a number of situations.
