Caregiver Support - Older Adults

Are you taking care of an elderly adult who is sick, disabled, or frail? We know the demand of doing so can be high, and the mental, emotional, and physical strength necessary to do so can at times feel extreme or overwhelming. Often, caregivers are taking care of others while also trying to balance their own work, social, and family life. Caregiver relief can help alleviate some of the stress that can be involved in being responsible for an older person’s care, by sharing the responsibility of caregiving, and also offering support to the caregiver to help balance the demands and challenges they may face. Are you currently caring for an older family member, but finding it hard to meet the needs of your own life while doing so? Do you simply need a short-term break in order to gain back some of your own energy? There are many options for caregiver relief including assistance with meal preparation, transportation, personal care and household chores. In order to take care of someone else, you also need to take care of yourself. If you are looking for caregiver relief options in your neighbourhood, we have the resources you need. You are not alone. Connect with others who may be going through the same thing, find professional help and resources near you. The Kinjunxion community is here to help.
