Why You May Not Be Ready to Provide Care Yourself

When you look at things objectively, you may realize hiring a professional in home caregiver from the Bryn Mawr area can be a better choice for your loved one. Caregivers often have specialized knowledge which you may not possess. Caring for an elderly adult is much different from caring for a child and when that senior is your parent, things can get complicated. It may also be embarrassing for your parent who once took care of you, to have to turn around and ask for help going to the bathroom, etc...

Some additional reasons you may not be ready to provide care to a loved one include:

  • It is not uncommon for family caregivers to become resentful, especially if their relationship has been strained
  • It is awkward for all parties involved when an adult child has to "parent" their mother or father
  • Caregiver burnout is a very real consequence which can cause family members anxiety and fatigue
  • If your time is already stretched to the max due to work, family, friends, and other commitments
  • You may not have the skills which are needed to properly address your loved one's needs
  • Strained sibling relationships can make it difficult to agree on a single course of care for a parent
