While caring for a loved one, non-medical questions and concerns may arise that you’re not sure where to go to get answers or may be too uncomfortable or embarrassed to ask family or friends. Talking with a caregiver advisor can help provide the support you need. Family members and friends who take up the caregiving mantle are a special breed. People like you strive to provide for their loved ones and ensure their comfort and wellbeing in any way they can. Caregivers rise to meet countless challenges, but as a loved one's needs increase, you can suddenly find yourself overextended physically, mentally and even financially. It is imperative to remember that your own health, happiness and relationships should continue to be a priority throughout this journey, whether you are brand new to caregiving or a 10-year veteran.
Finding the tools you need to be able to make time for your career, doctor’s appointments, exercise, a social life, and general respite will not only help you thrive, but also ensure that your loved one is receiving the quality care they need. Elder care experts and fellow caregivers are here to offer the unique emotional support and guidance that people like you require in order to succeed in caregiving.
