As a caregiver we know you do everything you can to ensure your loved one gets what they need when they need it. We also understand that caregiving may not be your only responsibility, and that can make the other duties you are in charge of difficult too. Caregiving is a job in itself, but you may still have a family to take care of and a job, which puts a strain on your entire day. Although caregiving is often categorized as a choice it is more accurately a lifestyle for those providing the care and services. Senior care thus becomes more difficult to handle as they require more time and attention. Some days, more often than not, you may not even have a moment of rest for yourself, which can then cause a strain on your personal well-being. Occasionally you may want to look for resources and medication information, but that may mean waiting until late evening or night to get it done as your day is already planned and tightly scheduled between work, family, and caring for the senior in your home. It can be difficult and time consuming to do research, so below we offer you some helpful websites with tips and resources to assist you in your caregiving needs.
