Caregiving is a labor of love, and love is about selflessness and sacrifice. Spouses give up so much for each other, parents constantly put their children’s needs before their own, and when those children become grown adults with aging parents, they want to return the love and care they received.
Options exist for senior widows and widowers who feel isolated because they can no longer drive. Senior centers and churches are good places to start. The local Home Instead Senior Care® office can lend a hand, too.
Employment for many people who have reached retirement age is no longer an option, and a job has even become a necessity in some cases. The Home Instead Senior Care® network offers caregiving opportunities for seniors who like to help other seniors.
Many adult children have encountered the challenge of long-distance caregiving as senior loved ones cope with a chronic illness. One solution is respite help by way of a strong local support network or a dependable professional caregiving company like the Home Instead Senior Care® network.
If the grandchildren are coming to your senior loved one’s home for the holidays, help ensure a safe environment. From decorations to presents to food, don’t miss a detail. A Home Instead CAREGiverSM could help pull everything together.
