Back to School: Teachers are you a caregiver to a senior citizen and are concerned about who will help him or her when you go back to work?
During the summer you were able to devote much time to reminding your loved one to take medications, eat meals, make doctor appointments and help shower. The act of care giving is in itself often a full-time job with no breaks and it is constant worry about someone who needs everything from minimal reminders to full-time live in help.
Well now is the time to start to look into an assessment of what your senior needs and to set up the help now so that the loved one gets used to a stranger coming into the home when the caregiver goes back to school.
Most in-home services have minimal hour requirement per visit and often there is no requirement on frequency of those visits nor the contract for length of time of care.
