I just read a good article, “Two for One: Caring for Two Elders At The Same Time,” about trying to cope with the situation of being responsible for the care of not only one elderly parent, friend, or family member, but for two or more. This can be very challenging, trying to keep everyone safe and see that their needs are being met, while balancing your own life in the mix. This article discusses this topic, and offers some alternative ways to deal with the situation, including information about getting a Senior Companion or consider in-home help with caregiving or placement in an Assisted Living facility. For a listing of available care homes in the US, go to www.assistedcarefacilities.net. The article also mentions how this multiple-caregiving can lead to increased stress and Caregiver Burnout, with several articles and information on this subject. Check out the article for details!
If you see a care home listed on the assistedcarefacilities.net that isn’t in business anymore or for some reason should be removed, OR if you know of a care facility that is new & not in the database yet, please send us a message or blog about it. We want to hear from you! Our goal is to have the most up to date and accurate directory for your information.
