It’s no secret that being the primary caregiver of a sick elderly family member can be stressful—especially if you’re doing it full time. As a human, you also need to take a break and rest. It’s not to say that you don’t want to take care of your senior loved one. Taking a break only means you care enough about yourself so that you can continue caring for other people.
If you’re worried that no one will look after your senior family member, you may want to explore assisted living homes that offer adult day care services.
There are adult day care services that typically provide supervision to their senior residents, recreational and social activities, as well as meals and medication assistance in Georgia. Some adult day care facilities may also offer evening and weekend hours, and transportation to help you out further.
Adult day care facilities not only provide services for senior residents but some centers also provide support to caregivers through counseling, support groups for caregivers, care planning, and caregiving education.
