Is there anything more gratifying in this world than knowing you’ve made a difference in someone else’s life?
We can all agree caregiving is stressful. May is Mental Health Awareness Month and we want to make sure you are not leaving your stress unchecked!
Did you know April is dedicated to celebrating occupational therapists and bringing awareness to the profession?
The greatest strength of occupational therapy (OT) is being able to tailor treatment plans to each patient’s individual needs, life, abilities and limitations. Occupational therapy bridges an often overlooked gap between evidence-based recovery science and the art of adaptive technologies and creative problem solving.
Caregiving is often found as a result of a crisis situation. We hear a lot, “If I only knew then what I know now.” As an adult child, we may often find ourselves unprepared for a loved one’s medical crisis. Creating a plan for prevention, involvement and knowledge building can help ensure your loved one is receiving the best medical care possible when an emergency happens.
We’ve all heard the saying “teamwork makes the dream work”.
There is a mental, physical and financial toll effecting our nations caregivers. It is important to recognize all the efforts caregivers are making to care for family and loved ones. The desire to help others is healthy and very human, especially following medical episodes but ongoing caregiving can become overwhelming, and this impact can be deep.
Receiving in-home care services has never been easier but not all senior services are alike. What are the reasons you may be looking for home care? Maybe it is a recent medical episode, management of a chronic illness, or caregiver burnout.
