How In-Home Care from Visiting Angels McKinney Helps Family Caregivers Work from Home
During the height of the coronavirus epidemic, many individuals in Collin County, TX made the decision to work from home instead of going into an office. Even though COVID-19 restrictions have been eased, some people continue to work at home indefinitely. Working from home provides many benefits, including the ability to provide more hands-on care for an elderly parent or relative. However, it can be difficult for some family caregivers to balance caregiving responsibilities with remote work responsibilities, whether it’s short-term or long-term.
If this sounds like your situation, know that you are not alone.
At Visiting Angels McKinney, we’ve been providing professional in-home senior care throughout McKinney, Allen, Prosper, Frisco and surrounding communities since 2008. You can count on our caregivers to provide the support your loved one needs with everyday tasks so you can focus on working remotely while having peace of mind.
How Can Senior Care from Visiting Angels McKinney Help My Loved One While I’m Working from Home?
Here’s how family caregivers who work remotely benefit from working with our professional caregivers:
When you are working from home, it is possible that you may be required to respond to emails, take part in video conference sessions, create reports and do other things that you would normally complete at the office. It might be challenging to focus on a task at hand if you often have to stop and attend to the needs of a senior who is either in the same house or lives nearby. Frequent interruptions might reduce your attention, productivity, and ability to hold a conference call or chat on the phone.
However, when you hire a caregiver from Visiting Angels McKinney, you can give yourself more time to focus on your work. That’s because we’ll provide the in-home care your loved one needs throughout the day, lowering the chances of interrupting your productivity.
If your elderly loved one suffers from memory loss, chronic conditions or trouble getting about, they may require care and support at all hours of the day. Our caregivers can help your loved one stay safe and comfortable by reminding them to take their medication, helping them get from room to room or up and down the stairs and so much more. That way, you can focus on completing work tasks and participating in meetings without having to worry about your loved one’s safety.
Companionship and Socialization
When you’re focusing on your remote work, your loved one may feel lonely and want someone to talk to. At Visiting Angels McKinney, our caregivers do more than help with day-to-day tasks. They also provide meaningful companionship. Our Angels can spend quality time with your loved one and fulfill their need for social interaction, allowing you to complete your work and spend time with your loved one at a time that’s convenient for both of you.
Focus on Your Own Needs
Even when the workday is over, you may not be ready to jump into caregiving responsibilities right away. Our caregivers can help prepare dinner, bathe your loved one or accompany them to appointments and outings while you focus on taking care of yourself after a long day working. That way, you can focus on running errands or decompressing while knowing someone is caring for your loved one.
Your professional life isn’t always predictable. You may need to do additional work during the evening or overnight. You may need to physically attend work events or stop by the office to pick up something. Fortunately, we can work with you and your loved one’s schedule to provide the in-home care they need when they need it most. We’re available during the day, overnight, on weekends and even 24/7.
Hiring a caregiver from Visiting Angels McKinney might be the best senior care option if you're feeling overwhelmed while caring for your elderly loved one and working from home.
