Becoming a family caregiver can happen slowly or very suddenly and it is often very overwhelming. Keeping a level head and following a few simple pieces of advice can help you start strong and persevere.
At HealthTexas we believe that caring for a loved one doesn’t have to be an all or nothing situation. There are services available to alleviate some of your daily responsibilities. The benefits of adult day care are twofold. Aging parents can enjoy social opportunities, activities and added safety while you are free to work, run errands and have personal time.
At HealthTexas we consider a social network and moral support a must for family caregivers. Learn to set personal boundaries and provide care in a safe and healthy manner. Don’t do it alone, ask questions or speak with one of our HealthTexas primary care doctors.
