November is National Family Caregivers Month and we here at Attentive Care Inc. would like to recognize and celebrate those who are helping give support to the elderly community especially those caring for their own family and loved ones.
It is important that you take care of yourself properly, especially as a caregiver, as you cannot pour from an empty cup and won’t be able to provide excellent care. In order to avoid that here are three tips to make sure that you are in great shape.
See a doctor regularly. 70% of caregivers report they don’t see a doctor regularly because of their responsibilities
Seek help from others. If you feel overwhelmed with your responsibilities reach out to someone you can trust to help lighten your load.
Rest and recharge when necessary. Taking time off to rest your body allows you to come back feeling energized.
Join us in thanking them for all of their
hard work and effort this month!
My wife‘s 87 years old father, Herbert has been receiving services from Attentive Care Inc. since late July. During this time, Herbert faced many challenges due to a rapid increase of his dementia symptoms. He had several hospitalizations, and several urinary catheters, which he at various times, pulled out, and currently he has an in dwelling Supra pubic Catheter. My wife and I cannot say enough about the care and compassion, which the staff of Attentive Care Inc. showed Herbert. Due to his condition, we have had aides many hours of the day and night for him. Even in the face of challenges of caring for a dementia patient, the aides who worked with him never lost their patience and composure. The aides are always professional, even though we’ve become very comfortable with our regulars Attentive Care Inc. has been very accommodating with our requests to have familiar faces working with Herbert. We would not hesitate to recommend this company for any home care needs.
…..Sincerely, Mitchell and Joyce Winter
There are no words to describe my appreciation for the services and care you have provided for my son as he recovers from a head trauma. It has been six months since the accident, our adult son lives in one city and my husband and I live 800 miles from him. We did not know where to turn to find a caregiver. We feel so fortunate that we found your agency. Your level of professionalism and your Attentive Care. Toward our son and the family, were extraordinary. You could not have picked a more appropriate name for your company! Your Screening process appears to be so thorough. We were fortunate to meet his initial caregivers and felt very secure knowing
that he would be under their care 24/7. As our son began to recover, you really understood his personality and the type of person who would work best with him. His caregiver has truly become a companion and a part of our family. If we ever have a question to ask her, she promptly returns our calls and is so pleasant and forthright. I think the two things that separate your agency from other agencies are your 24-hour call service and your empathetic ear as you listen to the needs of the client and the client’s family. The fact that you travel hours to visit the clients is also an exceptional service. It is so hard to watch a loved one suffer. It is such a helpless feeling. Your agency has helped to make the challenges more manageable and has helped to make one family feel so much more secure. I have told everyone I know on the east coast about you. I wish that you covered all fifty states. You are a credit to the profession and have become a trusted friend. Thank You for servicing a population who needs support from others.
…..Sincerely, An appreciative parent of an adult child.
