Some of the ways that a care provider can reduce your stress include:
- Taking on sensitive tasks. Many elderly adults have needs and challenges that can be potentially sensitive. Needing help with bathing, toileting, dressing, and other such tasks can be emotionally difficult for you to take on for your senior and lead to serious stress. A care provider, however, can take on these tasks and fulfill them effectively with respect and dignity
- Giving you more time. One of the most stressful elements of being a family caregiver is feeling as though you have more to do than you have time to do it in. The personalized services of a care provider can take on some of your care tasks for your parent so that you have more time to focus on other responsibilities and obligations in your life
- Providing support if you are at a distance. Living at a distance from your aging parent can make being a family caregiver even more difficult. You may worry that your aging parent is alone too often or that you are not able to ensure that their needs are met effectively. Knowing that there is a care provider in the home with your parent and that they are able to support your parent, give them the care that they need, and provide you with updates of any changes can be tremendously reassuring
