Caring for a senior parent can be overwhelming. You may be left juggling a number of caregiving duties with what’s going on in your day-to-day life, such as work and being a parent to your own kids. A third of American adults spend approximately 20 hours a week caring for aging, disabled or chronically ill family members. As your parent ages, caregiving can become a full-time responsibility that turns into 40 or more hours every week.
Senior Elder Care
Even if you have the help and support that you need, caregiving can be a disruption to your work life, your social life, your sleep habits, and even your finances. If allowed to continue, it can take a toll on you physically and emotionally. It’s impossible to be available 24/7, and you need to take care of yourself. In order to preserve the relationship that you have with your parents as their child, you cannot be their caregiver 24/7.
