Get The Helping Hand That You Need Using Senior Care Options

According to facts and figures provided by the Alzheimer’s Association, in 2014 friends and family members of people who suffer from dementia and Alzheimer’s provided an estimated 17.9 billion hours of unpaid care to their loved ones who are suffering from this progressive medical condition.

 

As you can imagine, the toll that Alzheimer’s Disease takes is not just limited to the person who has been diagnosed. People who are responsible for the long-term care of their loved ones also suffer both mentally and physically from their duties, which is why many people investigate Senior care options that are available to our beloved Kapuna in Hawaii.

 

Help with Chore Services

 

Sometimes a bit of help can go a long way. In many cases, cleaning and other time-consuming tasks are the last things that you want to do after providing care for your loved one. This is when bringing someone into help with chore services can help make your life a little bit easier.

 

Caregivers in Hawaii can rely on chore services to help with meal preparation, light house cleaning, deep cleaning, securing rugs and moving furniture for safe passage within the home environment.

 

Respite Care Services

 

From time to time, primary caregivers may have to turn to the help of others to temporarily care for their loved ones due to scheduling issues, personal problems or their loved one requiring more care than they are able to give.

 

This is a time when respite care services are helpful to work through the situation. Respite care services is a senior care option that gives primary care givers temporary relief from their normal care activities, but assures that their loved one remains in the care of capable and skilled hands.

 

Outreach Services

 

Caring for someone that is suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s can take a toll on caregivers both emotionally and physically. If you are feeling stressed out and need someone to talk to, the Alzheimer’s Association offers a toll-free 24/7 Help Line where you can get telephone counseling. These counseling services can help refer you to local support groups and communities, resources, as well as offer general support and clinical consultations.

When you are a dementia caregiver there is no doubt that you are in a stressful situation. Luckily, there are more senior care options available for you to make use of than ever before.

 

By outsourcing some amount of chore services to a professional, you can give yourself a bit of a break as it concerns tasks like housecleaning and meal preparation.

 

If you need a short break to tend to things in your own life, respite care can give you the time you need to take care of yourself for a short while.
