Keeping Emotions In Check as a Caregiver

a-1 home care elder care sierra madre

Sometimes we forget that caregivers are human as well.  They sacrifice themselves to provide better quality of life for seniors, elderly, and the terminally ill.  Although caregiving can be a satisfying and rewarding experience, but like other jobs, it can have its up’s and down’s.  There are some common feelings that are felt by caregivers.  For example, one may feel guilty over their own ability to enjoy life compare to the care recipients.  Maybe there is an overwhelming feeling on the circumstances that the care recipient is under.  If the person is in pain, the caregiver might be feeling helpless because it is simply out of their control to curb the suffering.

There are perfectly normal, and potentially emotionally harmful feelings for caregivers.  More and more caregivers are suffering from stress and burnouts because many are putting their emotions on hold to provide the best care possible.  However, sacrificing their own well being that leads to caregiver burnouts can only lead to the decrease in quality of care.  Consequently, caregivers should keep their their emotions in check, and seek support as soon as possible when you feel overwhelmed by your job as a caregiver.

At A-1 Home Care, our caregivers knows that if there is any questions or concerns, the company is there to support them.  We value our caregivers as much as we do our clients, because without the quality caregivers, we cannot provide quality services to our clients.  Working for A-1 Home Care means that we provide a schedule for you to limit the chances of caregiver burnout with adequate rests.  In addition, since we cover both Los Angeles and Orange County, we are able to find a job that is closer to home with less traveling.  From Arthritis Care to Dementia Care to Parkinson Care, we fit your skills to match the job we offer, so both our caregivers and clients can co-exist and bond with each other.

Managing Elderly Insomnia for Caregivers

a-1 home care

When you are a caregiver that provides round the clock care, one of the issues you may have to deal with include helping an Elderly individual deal with Insomnia and sleep related issues.  Insomnia can be caused by a variety of factors included medication, anxiety/depression, chronic pain, and sedentary lifestyles that lack sufficient exercise.  So what have you done under circumstances where someone you are providing care for wakes up feeling agitated in the middle of the night?

After you’re sure that it wasn’t just a one night issue and that it is legitimately a problem that keeps happening, you need to find out what may be causing it.  If the issue is medication, perhaps a doctor visit and an alternative type of medication can alleviate the problem.  Lifestyle changes such as encouraging your loved one to read before bed instead of watching television, restricting caffeine, food, and drink consumption at hours close to bed time, and daily exercise may be effective solutions.  Check this article titled Insomnia: The Caregiver’s Role for more advice.  According to the article, sleep aids such as sleeping pills should be avoided because the body can eventually become resistant to them.

Helping with Elderly Holiday Blues

a-1 home care

The holiday season is almost over!  We just have New Year’s left, but if things went smoothly during Thanksgiving and Christmas time, congratulations.  The holiday season can be a very difficult time for Elderly individuals who have limited contact with family members.  The loneliness heightens especially if the Elder individual has lost a significant other or close friends in recent times.  They may spend too much time dwelling upon nostalgic memories of joyous Thanksgiving dinners, Christmas gatherings, and welcoming the New Year in good company.

As caregivers, it’s our duty during this time to understand what these Elderly people are going through and be able to prevent, recognize, and manage depression during the holidays.  This article titled Holiday Blues and the Elderly provides some background on why this time of the year is so difficult for some, provides some signs to look out for that may indicate your loved one is depressed, and ways to help them cope.  Try to get into contact with the nearest relatives and alert them of the situation.  If they live far, suggest a phone call to the Elderly individual to try and get them excited for participation in holiday activities.  This provides reassurance that they are loved and not forgotten.  While it’s just you and the Elderly individual, think of holiday activities that you can participate in such as shopping, window shopping, playing holiday games, watching holiday programs, etc.
