  • A professional home care services provider can help. When you hire a high-quality caregiver from Visiting Angels Havertown who offers personalized at-home services, you can have confidence that your loved one is receiving professional support with their day-to-day activities.
  • Prioritize quality over quantity when it comes to time. It’s helpful to remember that the quality of time you spend with your loved one may be more important than the quantity of time you are together. Make the moments you can be near your loved one count rather than fretting about whether you’re calling or visiting frequently enough.
  • Reach out to others who are close to your loved one. Don’t shoulder all the responsibility of arranging your loved one’s care and tending to their emotional and social needs. Do your best to share these duties with others who are close to your loved one, whether they are family or friends. You may find that they are happy to help reduce your stress and provide support for someone they care about.
  • Think ahead. It’s very common for elderly adults’ needs to change quickly, so it’s worth taking a moment to envision what your loved one’s future care situation may look like. A home care services provider from Visiting Angels Havertown can work with you to adapt your loved one’s care plan as their circumstances change.
