4 Key Resources for In-Home Caregivers

A recent study reported that a large percentage of people who take care of someone 50 or older have a difficult time balancing their personal lives with their caregiving responsibilities. The number of adults who need special care is increasing each day, and caregivers are reaching out for places they can turn to for help.

1. Caregiver Action Network (CAN)

CAN is an organization that is dedicated to helping people live a quality life while caring for their loved ones. They are a non-profit group that provides education, resources, and support to family caregivers. Check out their website today at www.caregiveraction.org to find an array of information about caregiving.

2. Elder Care Locator

The U.S. Administration on Aging, which is a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human services, have developed the Eldercare Locator to help older adults and caregivers stay current on available resources. The goal is to help caregivers find trustworthy services such as senior home care in Santa Clarita, caregiver training, education, and meals. Sometimes caregivers just need a break and the Eldercare Locater at www.eldercare.gov can help with that.

3. ARCH Respite Network

Caregivers can log on to www.archrespite.org to find a list of respite care in Santa Clarita. To be a good caregiver, a hiatus from the regular routine is needed to help them regroup and even take care of personal business. There may be state or federal funding available to help pay for adult respite services.

4. National Alliance for Caregiving

The National Alliance for Caregiving is a non-profit coalition who is focused on helping caregivers cope. Their goal is to improve the lives of the senior and caregiver through research, innovation, and advocacy. They have teamed up with several different organizations to provide research studies and offer support to those who need it. The National Alliance for Caregiving website at www.caregiving.org is full of information for older adults and their caregivers.

If you are the primary caregiver for a senior loved one, find additional support and resources by reaching out to Home Care Assistance. In addition to part-time, respite, and live-in care, we offer comprehensive Alzheimer’s and dementia care in Santa Clarita.
