Most of the time, the point at which we finally accept help caring for a loved one is long after we realize we need help. Typically a stretched caregiver has far surpassed their limits by the time they reach out to another family member, friend or professional caregiver. Often times professional caregivers are not brought into the picture until the family caregiver is exhausted physically, mentally and emotionally. Perhaps the loved one’s needs have suddenly become greater than you realized.
What is the tipping point for your family?
- Is the care your loved one requires bigger or more complex than you can handle?
- Do you have the time needed to manage the challenges of care?
- Do you have the skills needed to provide the complexities of care?
- Are the current caregivers finding their own health or well being is being jeopardized from the strain of the care they are providing?
