Respite Care in Bolingbrook, IL and the surrounding areas of Will county
It’s commonplace for family members to take it upon themselves to provide care for a disabled or sick elderly loved one. Taking on such responsibility is admirable, but it isn’t an easy responsibility. Caregiving is demanding and can be stressful. It can even lead to poor health for the family caregiver. This is because the family caregiver will often prioritize providing care over their own well-being, so they may be overly stressed or lack sleep. Additionally, family caregivers may feel guilty taking time off to take care of their own personal matters.
Assisting Hands Home Care provides respite care services in Bolingbrook, Joliet, Romeoville, IL and surrounding areas in Will County to help family caregivers to take time off from their caregiving responsibilities.
Short-Term and Long-Term Respite Care for Seniors
Our respite care services include developing a care schedule that gives the family caregiver time off from caregiving duties. We will also tailor our care plan to resemble that of the family caregiver for consistency.
Given the following numbers, it’s easy to see the importance of family caregivers taking breaks to attend to their personal lives:
- There are over 65 million people in the U.S. who act as a caregiver for a relative.
- Of the aforementioned 65 million, women account for two-thirds of them.
- Nearly one-fourth of family caregivers have health issues — one of which is depression.
Such health issues come about because of demanding schedules and high stress levels. Combine that with lack of sleep, and it isn’t hard for caregiving to negatively impact your health. Family caregivers have their own lives but have difficulties finding a work-life balance when providing care to a loved one.
