The holiday season is upon us and while it brings so much joy, it can also be a stressful time. The addition of holiday preparations can be especially demanding for family caregivers. Tasks such as planning celebrations, holiday shopping, hosting out of town guests, and decorating the house when added to caregiving can be overwhelming. Holidays should be a joyful time that every family member can enjoy.
If you are trying to decide on the perfect gift for a family member in need, or one who is a caregiver, hiring a temporary aide through Community Care of the Northeast can be the answer.
Community Care of the Northeast will provide additional help for your loved ones through home health care aides who are trained and supervised by registered nurses. Aides are also able to provide help with daily living tasks and give the added support a family needs during the holidays.
Home health care aides free up family caregivers to take time off or travel without the worry that their family member will be without social interaction and care.
It’s important for family caregivers to have the peace of mind that their loved ones are being cared for by reliable, caring professionals. CCNE provides client-centered, nurse supervised care.
CCNE can also provide volunteer drivers who will help with transporting your loved one to and from medical/clinical appointments with our Wheels for Independence Program.
The drivers provide safe door to door escorts to and from home. Personal attention is given to each client. Transportation to grocery stores or other local destinations that provide fulfilling social interaction is also available.
Family caregivers can often be overwhelmed and stressed during the holiday season.
Caregiver burnout is a real danger. Studies show between 40% – 70% of family caregivers experience fatigue and depression that accompany caregiver burnout. Providing short-term additional help through Community Care of the Northeast can be the best gift someone caring for a loved one who is in need. The gift of time and a peace of mind will be the best gift a caregiver or someone in need will receive this holiday season.
