The beginning of the beginning...The Holiday Season. It's the perfect time to reflect on our blessings and to seek out ways to make life better for those around us. This time last year, we encouraged you to keep your eyes open about the changes in your loved ones that indicated decline. This holiday season we encourage you to pay attention to the family caregiver who is the primary support for your aging loved one. We are here to support you with ways to make their life and yours a little bit sweeter, without adding to the barrage of desserts that are sure to be coming your way over the next 6 weeks.
Did you know that the average family caregiver works a minimum of 20 unpaid hours per week in addition to their own work and family responsibilities. This stressful lifestyle has an impact on the statistics which state that 65% die before the person they are caring for.
When was the last time you, or another family caregiver, had a day off for personal enjoyment or took the time for an annual wellness checkup? Click here to request our Caregiver Strategies to empower you in your role or to give to a caregiver that you are concerned about.
