Senior Helpers Helps Ensure Your Loved One is Safe-and You Can Relax
You and your family need a vacation, but you need someone to help your parents while you are away.
You have business or doctors appointments, but you don’t know what to do with your aging family member when you are tied up.
You want to spend the afternoon having lunch with your friends and shopping, but what can you do with your mom who can’t be left alone?
Next month, you’re invited to an out-of-town wedding, but who can you trust to help watch your loved one?
Family members, who are responsible for the care of a loved one, may become exhausted, frustrated or depressed when they don’t have enough time for themselves.
“Senior Helpers can help by providing a trained, safe and compassionate caregiver for your mom, dad, grandparents, aunt, uncle or friend who can’t be left alone,” says Bob Tucker, qualified dementia care provider (QDCP), co-owner of Senior Helpers serving the north and northwest suburbs.
Senior Helpers is the affiliate office for the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America in the Chicagoland area, and has specially trained caregivers who can care for seniors-including people with Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s and other dementias, and people with other physical and cognitive challenges. Senior Helpers provides more than 50 types of services such as medicine reminders, help with walking, bathing, toileting, feeding, dressing and exercising. In addition, Senior Helpers caregivers can provide housekeeping services such as cooking, cleaning, laundry, transportation, companionship and much more.
“If you have been caring for a loved one for sometime, you may be facing burnout or stress-related illness and not even realize it,” says Abbie Tucker senior advocate and client services director, certified senior advisor (CSA), a qualified dementia care provider (QDCP) and co-owner of the local Senior Helpers office. “It is important that you take the time to relax and recharge periodically and enjoy life during this difficult period. People who serve as family caregivers are much more apt to become ill or even pass away early if they don’t get help from other family members, friends or professional caregivers on a regular basis.”
