When a family member is no longer able to take care of themselves due to mental or physical limitations, the duty falls on loved ones to ensure proper assistance is received.
At least this is how it has been viewed by many for many years. However, the hours of sacrifice that result can lead to depression and poor health for the ones providing the care if they are not adequately prepared.
This is where our Assisting Hands Home Care caregivers can help. We offer fully customizable respite care services to give you a much-needed reprieve.
We are happy to assist on a short-term or long-term basis, and we adhere to the needs of your schedule. We offer our caregiving services to families in need in Westmont, IL, and the surrounding areas.
More on Informal Caregiving
Informal caregiving is a term used to describe when a family member cares for an ailing loved one. They are not paid yet contribute hours of personal time to ensure the health and well-being of their loved one.
While this is undoubtedly admirable, studies have shown that it is not always sustainable. Of the over 65 million Americans who provide informal care for a loved one, nearly 25% of them suffer health problems of their own.
This can be attributed to additional stress, lack of sleep, and the fact that almost all leisure time is devoted to providing care. This greatly increases the risks of depression, and can cause a number of problems for families, careers, children, and individuals.
