Caring for a loved one who is sick, injured, or dealing with age-related complications can be a huge responsibility. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the responsibility you’ve taken on as a family caregiver in New Orleans, you’re not alone. It’s important to remember you can always reach out for help from Interim HealthCare of East Louisiana if you ever need someone to lean on in tough times.

How We Support Family Caregivers

Unfortunately, it’s quite common for family caregivers who try to take on too much to suffer from stress, burnout, and even depression. In many cases, these individuals feel guilty or uncomfortable sharing their responsibilities with others. However, failing to take time off to rest and recuperate can make it difficult or even impossible for them to provide their loved ones with the level of care they require.

Partnering with a respite care provider is a solution that can be customized to your unique situation. At Interim HealthCare of East Louisiana, we offer a broad spectrum of services throughout the New Orleans area, that can be particularly helpful for family caregivers. From medical care to support with homemaking, our services are specifically designed to help seniors and their concerned family members live their best lives.

When you choose to work with our care providers, you can finally find time to take care of yourself. Once you’ve regained balance in your life, you can focus more on making cherished memories with your loved one. Instead of worrying about meeting their care needs, you can reconnect with them on a personal level and enjoy simply being their son, daughter, or grandchild, rather than just their caregiver.

Some of the many ways we can support you are:

  • Assisting your loved one with bathing or grooming
  • Taking your loved one to the doctor
  • Running errands and picking up prescriptions
  • Acting as your loved one’s companion while you rest
  • Taking over your duties so you can go on vacation
