Burbank Home Care: When the Family Caregiver Becomes Ill

???????????????????????????????????????A-1 Home Care in Burbank applauds those who take time off from work to care for a loved one, whether that’s a spouse, parent or grandparent.  It’s a huge sacrifice for the family caregiver if she’s been working full-time all her life.  Depending on the support system that’s available around her, the family caregiver takes on the difficult responsibilities of day-to-day living caring for an elderly loved one who can no longer take care of himself.  Duties may include lifting and transferring, tending to one’s emotional needs, adjusting to one’s changing personality and moods, and toileting.  Caregiver burnout is extremely common and may trigger the family caregiver’s own health issues if she does not care for herself properly.  What happens when the family member can no longer tend to the care recipient?  It’s important to weave respite care into your daily routine to break the arduous monotony heavily laden on a single individual.  A-1 Home Care provides part-time caregiver services to provide relief for families everywhere in Burbank and surrounding cities.

Stepping Up for the Family Caregiver

Accidents happen.  The family caregiver may suffer a sudden fall coming down the stairs, or God forbid, a car accident renders the adult son or daughter helpless for a while, needing to depend on someone else for a while.  You can count on A-1 Home Care 24 hours a day to come in for short-term or long-term care.  If your relatives live far away, we have professional, seasoned caregivers who are just a hop, skip and a jump away from your Burbank home.  There is no need to feel helpless or useless, for our respite caregivers will see to it that you recover as quickly as possible.  Many of our return clients and their friends continue receiving in-home care services from A-1 Home Care long after their elderly loved ones’ critical needs are met, because they enjoy the companionship and an extra pair of hands around the house.  One of the many great benefits of having a caregiver in the home is that this person can be the liaison between you (the family caregiver), your elderly loved one, and your relatives far away so that the caregiver can keep everyone in the loop should you need in-home help for a while.  You will never have to feel isolated because A-1 Home Care is just one phone call away.
