Resources to help caregivers keep loved ones safe at home

1 comment

Older adults typically want to stay in their homes and maintain their independence as long as possible, and doing so generally is more affordable than moving into an independent or assisted living complex. Caregivers who take care of these older adults or a child or loved one with a long-term illness or disability can become overwhelmed with scheduling, daily tasks and unrelenting responsibilities. But there's lots of help out there, and many providers will come to your home. Here are some options to help you provide the best, most loving care possible — without losing your mind.

These non-residential programs provide supervised care to adults for part of a day, generally Monday through Friday. Some programs include meals, medical and wellness services, medication management, exercise and other activities. Days, hours and services vary.
