If this sounds like you, maybe we can assist you by providing support and equipping you with the necessary strategies and tools to help keep you and your loved one safe in their current living environment.
Whether your loved one is dealing with falls or poor balance, increased pain or if you are noticing your loved one is not getting around like they use to...we can help!!
We have worked with older adults who have previously worked with physical therapists and they were not able to keep up with doing the exercise routine or unfortunately, we hear some individuals have been through physical therapy and the services stopped because "insurance ran out and they were required to stop". Sound familiar?
We have also heard stories regarding our clients going in to see their primary physician and did not have time to discuss their ailments or worse they were told falling is 'normal part of aging' or if they are struggling with pain 'take it easy’ and 'it is arthritis there is not much more that can be done'.
If You’re Currently Assisting Your Loved One Here Are 5 Key Things To Consider In Keeping You and Your Loved One Safe:
Being proactive in the care you provide for your loved one. Staying current with the care they are receiving is very important. This can be challenging, however, knowing if you do not take action most likely no one else will. Great job if you are doing this!
Assisting your loved one in their care. Whether this means providing help with managing mediations, medical treatments or even an exercise program - having a means of providing assistance is essential. Remember these items can be delegated to a care team, however, we recommend you do your due diligence to ensure the care your loved one is receiving is top-notch.
Taking care of yourself as the caregiver - one of the most important things to consider to avoid caregiver 'burnout' or worse leading to you experiencing health issues is taking care of your mind and body as a caregiver
Your loved one has tried receiving treatment from Healthcare Professionals or Physical Therapy in the past - but it did not help or made things worse
You tried searching 'Doctor Google' or 'YouTube' for some 'exercises for older adults' - but they didn’t help or you weren't sure how to perform the exercises with your loved one or worse your loved one didn't respond well to you giving 'orders' to 'do the exercises'

“What Can You Do To Take Care Of Yourself As A Caregiver?”...
Well, here are 4 things you can do:
Create a great team around you and ask for help when you need it. Have you ever heard the expression 'it takes a village'? Caring for someone takes a team and being a caregiver can sometimes make you feel you are all alone. This should not be the case.
Keep up with your hobbies and take breaks for yourself every day. This can seem like it is not a priority, however, when you only focus on caregiving sometimes that can be draining. Staying active with the things you enjoy in life along with caring for your loved one can make all the difference.
Spend social time with friends and join a support group. This can be in-person or online, but consider taking time out to stay social.
