When It Becomes Too Much to Be a Caregiver, Leave it to The Experts!
Are you frustrated being a caregiver?
Do you feel a tremendous amount of pressure to care for your elderly parent?
Is being a caregiver becoming too much for you to handle?
Just hearing your phone ring or getting a text from Mom or Dad can generate caregiver anxiety overload. “Oh No! Did Mom fall again?” Should I cancel my plans?” All these worries are an everyday occurrence for most children who perform the role of caregiver.
When care giving has gotten the best of you and you think your care may not be enough, call Plymouth Terrace for independent living in Plymouth. If you’re struggling to give your parent the care they need, we can help!
“I was married to Victoria Prodan Swain for 62 years. About the year 2008, Vicki developed the signs of dementia. I tried to take care of her at home, and for a while that was successful. But the day came when I could no longer do the job. If Vicki fell out of bed, for instance, I was unable to put her back by myself; I had to call the fire department to come to our house and rescue her. That precipitated a decision: move Vicki now!” says Henry H. “Doc” Swain, M.D.
