Nature of Caregiving

Nature of Caregiving
Caregiving takes many forms. Many of us help older, sick, or disabled family members and friends every day. We know we are helping, but we don't think of ourselves as caregivers. We are glad to do this and feel rewarded by it, but if the demands are heavy, over time we can also become exhausted and stressed. We think we should be able to handle caregiving roles on top of busy work and family schedules and begin to feel guilty and depressed as our stamina wanes.

Nature of caregiving

About 44 million Americans provide 37 billion hours of unpaid, "informal" care each year for adult family members and friends with chronic illnesses or conditions that prevent them from handling daily activities such as bathing, managing medications or preparing meals on their own.

Well done everybody.

NP father of client

I find the office staff are very nice, if I have any problems they will sort them out. The two carers I have are very helpful and know my needs, in fact, they are helpful even having chats, which is lovely as I can’t get out there at the moment. I wouldn’t change this company. I am very satisfied, very pleased.

Client GF

My care workers are very helpful and polite. They assist me with everything I need. My carer is one of the best carers I have had until now. Whenever I need help she is there to help me out. Always keeps me updated with her timings etc. Overall all the carers are good and supportive and helpful.
