When an aging loved one needs help with day-to-day tasks, the first instinct is to offer that help ourselves. When caring for an elderly family member though, many caregivers begin to neglect their own health, interests, and needs. Even though providing care to a loved one is incredibly rewarding, it can also take its toll on you emotionally and physically. To ensure all your needs are met, in addition to those of your loved one, it is important to take regular breaks and have time to focus on the other important aspects of your life. At Senior Helpers of South Bend, we can help with our Granger, Notre Dame, and Mishawaka, IN respite care and in home care services.
To help alleviate the stress on family caregivers, Senior Helpers of South Bend offers respite care services.
