If you’re caring for a loved one who can’t take care of him or herself, you’re a caregiver.
Becoming a caregiver can literally happen overnight.
You get the call, you hear the news, and the job is automatically yours.
There’s no application process. No nervous waiting.
(And no previous experience required.)
You just learn as you go.
Because you have to do whatever it takes to make your loved one feel comfortable and keep all the plates spinning elsewhere in your life. But, caregiving can be exhausting, physically and mentally.
Perhaps you’re the family member best placed to provide care for your loved one or you’re caring for someone that’s lives a distance away and need to hire local help.
You don’t know what options are available to you or where to start.
Or perhaps you’ve been a caregiver for some time now and you want your loved one to have the very best care, but you’re burnt out and feeling desperate.
Wherever you are, I’m Aileen and I’ll meet you there.
I have over 25 years of experience as a caregiver, providing people like you with the support and advice to make caregiving easier, and to assist you in making the best choices for your loved one’s future.
Caring for loved ones who cannot care for themselves is my specialty: as a Geriatric Care Manager I’ve looked after clients at home, in Assisted Living Facilities, long distance, and I’ve even managed an Assisted Living Facility.
As well as being a caregiver myself, I have also personally hired, trained, and scheduled caregivers on behalf of clients who require round the clock care.
Over the years I’ve helped new caregivers deal with a wide variety of challenges, which you’re probably facing now.
Is your loved one…
- asking the same question over and over
- obsessing about things and driving you crazy
- asking to go home
- wandering off
- driving when they shouldn’t be
- refusing to bathe
- cussing and threatening
- arguing about ridiculous things
- not able to recognize you
