Aging Caregiver

Comments (2)

Are you an aging caregiver? Here is the reality. You are getting older and it’s getting harder for you to care for your elderly recipient without neglecting your own problems. To prevent caregiver burnout and injuries, you must remember that taking care of yourself is just as important as taking care of others. There comes a point when you must give up the caregiver role and try other solutions.

  • Nursing home

I understand it’s a bad economy right now. Although expensive, these are very viable options for aging caregivers. There is 24 hour supervision and nurses available. Usually you can get government resources to reduce the cost to you.

  • Hire a caregiver

if you have to take care of a close family member or parent, please get an extra hand for the manual labor tasks such as lifting or carrying heavy objects. The last thing you want is to get injured. That will not help you or the care recipient. There are caregiver agencies that offer good caregiver assistance to those who need such help.

  • Seek help from other family members or friends

This might seem like you are putting out a burden on others but just like it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a community to look after our aging population. This network is also important to provide emotional support.
The caregiver needs must not be ignored. You are not alone in this matter.
