Understanding Caregiving

Many of us are caregivers. Whether we are caring for parents, spouses, or other loved ones, we all could use extra help. Caregiving responsibilities might impact other family commitments, cause distractions at work or even create financial strain. You probably support your loved one's desire to continue living independently, but might feel concerned about that person's safety and wellbeing. The bottom line is that you don't need to do this alone. Fortunately, there are lots of resources available to help you decide when a loved needs assistance, and help you provide that assistance.

When your loved one can no longer care for herself, it's time to find help. But what kind of care environment is best?

The good news is you have options, more than you think. Making the transition to a new care environment or modifying a current one, like a home isn't as difficult as you might think.
