Evaluate Your Home Care Needs with this Activities of Daily Living Chart
Knowing the level of care your loved one needs is an important part of caregiving. Whether a little care is required or a lot depends on how well the senior handles their Activities of Daily Living or ADLs.
ADLs are the every-day activities that seniors often need help performing: bathing, dressing, grooming, mouth care, toileting, getting in and out of the bed or chairs, walking, climbing stairs and eating.
To help you establish the level of care for your loved one, we encourage you to download the ADL Assessment Chart. The chart takes less than a minute to complete. It is a simple yet powerful tool that will help you establish the level of care your loved one needs to live independently at home.
6 Signs of Caregiver Burnout
There are an estimated 40 million adult caregivers in the United States. On average, they spend almost an hour and 20 minutes a day providing unpaid assistance. Perhaps you’re spending more time than that each day caring for Mom or Dad or both.
Providing care to a loved one can be a fulfilling experience. On the other hand, it's a job that can come with physical and emotional challenges.
Here are 6 signs that you may be experiencing caregiver burnout:
- Feeling stressed or sad
- Feeling like caregiving chores are more than you can handle
- Concerned that you don’t have time to care for yourself
- Sleeping too much or too little
- Having trouble eating, or eating too much
- Losing interest in things you used to enjoy
It’s important that caregivers make time for themselves. Our experienced in-home caregivers at Visiting Angels Detroit can provide care to your loved one so that you have time to care for yourself.
