Assistance in activities of daily living is perfect for someone who simply needs a little extra help with daily activities. You don’t need a full-time nurse, but having someone by your side is priceless. If a family member has been filling this role, it can be a huge relief.

What it’s like
This morning, you’ll wake up, and you won’t know where you are.
A friendly person will greet you, and help you get ready for the day.

If you’ve never been alone - you probably don’t realize what it’s like.

Getting around can be difficult after hospitalization, injury, or simply as we get older. Even if you can get a ride, many find that getting in and out of the vehicle, getting around a store or even going to the bathroom can cause anxiety about going out.

Caregiving can be exhausting
For many family caregivers, the challenges of caring for an elderly, chronically ill, or disabled family member are simply a part of daily life.
You’ve got your home and work life, and your caregiving life, which can seem to take over everything else. Caregiving is a demanding job, which no one is equipped to do alone.
Sometimes you need a break, or a little help beyond what you’re able to provide. Respite care provides that short-term relief for primary caregivers. It can be arranged for just an afternoon or for several days or weeks.Keep Reading...
