The Importance of Planning Ahead for Care Requirements
The majority of care seekers contact us at the point of crisis. They can no longer provide what the care recipient needs. Feelings of guilt frustration and exhaustion are combined with the realisation that additional support is an immediate priority. This urgent need for a carer can limit choices.
Maintaining Quality of Life
Are you, or is someone you are responsible for, starting to struggle with everyday tasks? If your quality of life is being hindered, start exploring care provision.
You may not need a carer for another year, but get the process started.
Planning Short-term Care
If a hospital stay is arranged and aftercare will be an issue, plan ahead.
Find a local carer who can offer short-term care. This could include overnight stays or accompanying the care recipient to follow up appointments.
As the main carer for a family member, it can become difficult for you to meet all their needs. Additional support will help.
Just knowing that someone else can step in for an hour a day, or a day a week can help you to cope.
