Caregivers working during a holiday are commonly offered holiday pay and if you don’t have a plan in place, this is a good time to decide how you'll compensate your home care aide during all holidays throughout the year.
Don’t Forget These Minor Costs When Hiring a Caregiver
Providing safe transportation is one of the first challenges many families encounter when a senior chooses to age in place.
Today many seniors prefer to stay in their own homes as long as possible, but family and friends often have concerns for their safety and well-being -- especially during the pandemic.
Many families don’t realize how much a loved one’s health has deteriorated until a fall sends her to the hospital.
If you live far away and are busy juggling your own career and family, it can be difficult to care for an aging parent.
Whatever your needs, there’s an in-home caregiver that’s right for your family. But finding that person depends on clearly understanding your aging parent’s condition or disease, and defining the specific care he requires.
Whether you stepped in to help an elderly relative out of love, a sense of responsibility, or financial necessity, caregiving can sometimes feel like a burden – even for the most devoted family members.
Where to Turn When Your Caregiver Needs More Training
