Caring for an older loved can be a 24-hour, full-time commitment.
You’re not alone.

How You Can Help
Deciding that it’s time to get outside support for your senior loved one can be a difficult conversation.
Many adults who have been receiving care from a family member may be apprehensive about the idea of having an outsider come into their home.
Know how to give your loved one a voice and reassurance.
Listen. Understand that your loved one may have reasonable reservations about their care. It is important to hear them out and be sensitive to what they are feeling.
Be Open. It is important to be open about why you are choosing to ask for outside support and allow room for your loved one to reach their own conclusions.
It’s important to share your needs, too.
If caring for your loved one has become overwhelming for you, this is a good time to be honest about your own stress. It’s okay to say that home care is going to help you, too!
Ask Questions. When you have decided it’s time for a live-in caregiver, it’s usually because there are signs in your loved one’s behavior that indicate you need additional support.
You can ask questions about these signs to help them reach the same conclusion.
Provide Reassurance. Make it clear you are not abandoning them and that you love them. Sometimes, we all need a reminder that the ones we love are always there.
