There are some families who can manage to provide care for their elderly loved ones by designating a relative or two to care for them in their home. Having a family member act as the caregiver for your elderly relatives has some benefits such as the familiarity and knowledge the caregiver has of your loved one’s needs, but family caregivers need a break. Those who provide informal care often devote long hours to caring for their loved ones which can lead to stress, lack of sleep, and even health issues.
It is common for family caregivers to focus on their loved ones instead of their own health, which eventually takes its toll. The long hours combined with the lack of sleep make family caregivers vulnerable to stress, depression, and physical health problems. Many family caregivers report that they are in fair to poor health themselves. It is also difficult for family caregivers to juggle children and a career with their caregiving duties. This is why it is important to work with a respite care provider that can give the family caregiver a break.
