Caring for an Aging Loved One? We Can Help!
Many times, caring for a loved one involves family, so Comforting Arms can also play a role in providing “respite care” for the family caregiver (i.e., a wife caring for a husband or a daughter/son caring for her/his parents). Constant caregiving can bring considerable stress, because the caregiver’s focus is centered on the one needing care. Very often, we see that when relief from daily routines is provided, allowing the family caregiver(s) more time for themselves, the relationship strengthens.
We allow family members to be family; not caregivers. In the 21st Century, the demands placed on family and other informal caregivers continue to escalate, and will eventually affect nearly every American family. It’s everyone’s greatest fear: a parent starts to forget things…he becomes bewildered, confused, and angry…finally, he can’t take care of himself and needs full-time care.
