Yesterday I was living a normal married life, raising two wonderful children, and working at my dream job.
Today, I’m an unemployed family caregiver who’s now at home taking care of my mother full-time. I’m stretched between my children and my mother and it’s taking a toll on my marriage and finances.
I do everything I can to support my family, but where can I turn when I need support and advice?
Family caregivers need more support
In the United States, there are over 40 million unpaid caregivers who are facing senior care challenges and adjusting to major life changes.
As many as 6 in 10 adults with at least one parent aged 65+ say they have helped with shopping, preparing and eating food, cleaning, managing medication, bathing, dressing, companionship, and emotional support.
What makes the situation even tougher is that nobody is truly prepared for the call that changes everything – mom fell and broke her hip and will need full-time care from now on.
But where can you quickly get the help, support, and resources you need to find senior care solutions and stay mentally and physically well enough to keep providing great care?
Many of these life and caregiver challenges could be solved with the help of qualified professionals and senior care experts. But this type of help can be hard to find and access.
That’s where Senior Providers Network’s Family Caregiver Benefit Plan shines. For $5.99 a month, you get 24/7 access to the professionals you need right from your smartphone, tablet, and computer.
Professional help makes it easier to solve 3 top caregiver challenges
1. Why is it so hard to find a good lawyer at a reasonable price?
I recently discovered that my mom’s will hasn’t been updated since my father passed away 5 years ago.
I assumed that a quick call to her lawyer would take care of the matter. Instead, I discovered that his business was closed due to his passing!
What I thought would be a relatively straightforward task to have mom’s will updated ended up costing significant time, effort, and money.
2. Why can’t I get quick access to a doctor or nurse for a simple medical question?
Getting immediate answers to non-emergency medical questions would give peace of mind and improve quality of life.
But to get access to my mom’s doctor, we’re required to make an appointment. And we all know how tiring and time consuming it is to visit the doctor’s office. Even worse, it’s nearly impossible to get an appointment that’s less than a month away.
There are so many simple health-related questions that could be answered with a quick conversation with a doctor or nurse.
3. Who can provide support for my emotional well-being?
Caring for my mom can sometimes feel like a thankless job.
I haven’t been able to connect with friends to get support because of all the time I spend being there for my mom and family. At times, I feel so alone and unappreciated that it really depresses me.
I support my family emotionally, but who can I talk to when I need support and advice?
