Caregiving in Sunshine Coast
In today’s very high-pressure world, with the harsh economic and social stress that most of us experience at one time or another, the considerable strain of caring for an aged or disabled family member can take a terrible toll. Putting a loved one in a home can also have its downside – the worry about the care being given, the security of the patient, the abuse that does sometimes occur – all these prey on one’s mind.
30 percent of caregivers die before the people they care for
In 2020, almost 70 percent of caregivers, both women and men, will have to make adjustments to their own lives. This may mean turning down a promotion or cutting down on working hours, to name the most basic choices, which then adversely affects the business itself: a vicious cycle that bodes ill for all.
Caregiver stress is due to the emotional and physical strain of caregiving
So what can be done? While the instances of abuse in nursing homes are not great, they do exist and cannot be ignored. The alternative is home care, which gives the patient’s family greater control and supervision. Home care packages are available to assist with meal preparation, shopping, domestic assistance, and shopping/transport.
