The leading global provider of home care services for seniors polled its top professional CAREGivers(SM) – recipients of its annual CAREGiver of the Year award – for their best caregiving tips.
"Taking care of an older parent or grandparent is challenging for both family and professional caregivers alike," said Molly Carpenter, Home Instead Senior Care's CAREGiver(SM)Advocate and author of Confidence to Care, a new book for family caregivers. "Often, there are no one-size-fits-all solutions, but our seasoned CAREGivers have a wealth of experience that can help families better cope and enjoy their time with their loved ones."
Home Instead CAREGivers offer the following advice for families caring for seniors at home
These tips were provided by the 2013 Regional CAREGivers of the Year: Deborah Shanley, Ernest Thomas, Jeannie Cleary-Burns, Joseph O'Kelley II, Linda Siedell and Mariana Selejan.
In addition to these tips, Home Instead Senior Care offers an extensive library of resources for family caregivers, including Confidence to Care, the free Confidence to Care at Home Kit and free Alzheimer's and Other Dementias Daily Helper smartphone app.
