If you care for an elderly family member, you have probably taken on a lot of responsibilities. You may help with chores around the house, such as cooking, cleaning, and laundry. You may drive your loved one to medical and dental appointments. You may even help with basic needs, such as bathing, toileting, and dressing.
You probably also have other responsibilities. You may have a full-time or part-time job and a spouse and children of your own who rely on you. Juggling all of these responsibilities can be difficult and can leave you feeling tired and burnt out.
How a Caregiver Can Help You Manage Your Time
If you are struggling to care for a loved one on top of your other obligations and find it difficult to manage your time, a caregiver from Dependable Care can help. A caregiver can go to your family member’s home in Connecticut for a few hours a week or several hours every day, depending on your family’s level of need. This can free up some time for you and make it easier to manage your days and take care of your other responsibilities. It can also give you an opportunity to relax.
