General Senior Care Advice
If you are a new family caregiver of an older adult, or simply not ready to call us, you will find some general senior care advice below that may be helpful to you and your situation. Please keep in mind that every situation is different, and not all the elderly care advice provided here is necessarily applicable. When you are ready to speak with one of our senior care advisors for free guidance and support, we’re here 24/7 to help.
Find Time for Yourself
Every family caregiver knows they must find time for themselves to recuperate and recharge, yet many of them have difficulty following this piece of senior care advice. Perhaps it’s because those who become family caregivers are usually very selfless. But regardless, you need to make sure you’re giving yourself enough time to rest. Remember, you can’t take care of your loved one if you don’t take care of yourself.
Find Someone You Can Talk To
Although you would do anything for your family, taking care of an elderly loved one is stressful. Being able to vent can help relieve some of that stress. Whether you have a friend or partner you can speak to about the stresses of being a family caregiver, or want to call a senior care consultant who knows what you’re going through, try to find an outlet to discuss being a family caregiver.
One important piece of senior care advice to remember is that you can’t do everything on your own. This is why you should find help. Whether it be another loved one or an elder care service, you’ll want to have someone who can help in case anything comes up. Some services that could help you include in-home elder care and elderly day care centers.
Ensure Safety by Updating Your Loved One’s Living Space
Whether your loved one is living in their own home or with you, updating their living space to ensure their safety will give you peace of mind. There are a few different ways you can do this: regularly testing the batteries in the smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, adding a home security system, or having a stair lift installed, for example.
