Caring for an older person at home or in an aged care home can be stressful. If you feel you can provide the best care possible for a family member whilst caring for your own needs it can also be highly rewarding.
As much as possible an older adult, their caregiver and family members should be involved in caregiving. Unfortunately this isn’t always possible and many caregivers find themselves having to make complex decisions and problem solve on a daily basis.
I’ve included lots of caregiving tips and how to’s in this blog to help you provide the best care at home or in an aged care home.
Remember, looking after yourself and your own needs is just as important! Talking to others in similar situations and sharing ideas can be beneficial and I hope this blog helps to open up the conversation.
Recognising your own capabilities and knowing when to seek help is essential in the caregiving journey. Know there are a variety for services to help you.
