Taking Care of the Caregiver

The role of a caregiver for a loved one can be extremely meaningful. If the caregiver doesn’t get a reprieve however, it can be overwhelmingly stressful. Respite gives caregivers a much needed break while ensuring that their loved one is being cared for.

ALC Home Services can provide needed relief to the caregiver, whether it’s for a few hours each week or a few days. Our services are based on your specific needs. As trained professionals, we understand the importance of specific routines and are attentive to providing continuity of care.

Tips for Caregiver Support:

  • Don’t try to do everything. Involve other family members and/or friends. Get and give support to one another.
  • Try to keep patience; there will be long and tiring days. Remember why you’re doing this and the love you have.
  • Help your loved one to maintain some independence.
  • Trust your instincts as you know your family member best.
  • Take a break, and leave your guilt behind. Know your own limits. Do things you enjoy.

Studies show that respite care helps caregivers keep their loved ones at home longer.
