It is estimated that 50 million unpaid caregivers offer their time to loved ones in need. We know that this can take up a serious amount of your time, but it must be done. Unfortunately, what happens is that the majority of these generous people also suffer. The National Family Caregivers Association reports that the majority of these caregivers suffer from mental and physical strains.
Specifically, 27% reported having more headaches, 24% reported stomach disorders, 41% more back pain, 51% more sleeplessness, and 61% reported more depression.
It’s not something to take lightly and you shouldn’t have to suffer for just wanting to care for your loved ones. Sometimes, a little break is all you need.
Having a Life Care Manager supervise your loved one’s care brings peace of mind to the whole family. They can respond to needs as they arise, as well as anticipate and help plan for the future. The Life Care Manager is your advocate.
LivHOME Caregivers will be hand-selected and matched by the Life Care Manager. They must go through in-person interviews and extensive training. They are fully insured, drug tested, and have workers’ compensation coverage.
A comprehensive assessment will identify the needs and issues involved in caring for your loved one, providing you with the information, resources, and direction needed to create a quality plan of care. Speak with a Care Consultant about our rates and services today.
