In home health care can give families affordable caring support so that northern Michigan families can have a necessary break to attend to other obligations and free time for themselves
For generations, caring for an elderly family member has been deemed the ultimate act of kindness and faithfulness. Americans are living longer than in prior generations and seniors are the largest segment of the population, which means more and more caregiving is falling to family members. Comfort Keepers® respite care provides reliable, experienced short-term care so primary caregivers can take the time that they need to keep up with other responsibilities and avoid burnout.
As rewarding as it can be to care for a loved one who is aging, suffering from a chronic disease or a debilitating physical condition it can be very demanding. Very often family members aren’t formally trained to assume the responsibilities of caregiving but do their best to learn as they go. Without the right support it can be overwhelming and exhausting, particularly for caregivers who don’t live close by or have to juggle careers, children or other responsibilities along with caregiving.
You don’t have to do it alone, in home health aides can help.
Our trained caregivers are carefully screened and selected precisely because they will offer compassionate and professional care suited to the particular needs of each client and family. We will support the primary caregiver by providing assistance as required, from as little as a few hours a week to full-time or round-the-clock care.
Don’t wait until you burn out to ask for help.
Too many northern Michigan caregivers put all their focus on their loved one and sacrifice their own needs and health. You know your loved one best, but specially trained caregivers are a tremendous resource that can make learning to cope with your family member’s illness or condition less stressful. After all the hours you give putting your love one’s needs first you deserve time to recharge and look after yourself. Comfort Keepers in-home caregivers will provide excellent respite care so you can have a break and have more to give.
Feel guilty at the thought of hiring someone to help with your loved one? Don’t. Roughly half of all caregivers struggle to provide support alone, making it no surprise that studies show that 58% of caregivers suffer from clinical depression. If you get sick – who will care for your family member?
