All too often we neglect to recognize who the true heroes are in this world. Senior Protection would like to take this opportunity to properly offer our gratitude and respect for the hard work and dedication of Caregivers.
A “Caregiver” or “caretaker” refers to someone who provides care for another person no matter the age, gender or race. There are many different types of caregivers that provide specific care, like family caregivers and respite caregivers. Caregivers can help relieve burdens and support individuals in need. They may help for a long time or just a short time, but their care is always important to not only the individual being cared for but their families also.
The men and women that make up Caregivers are there to help seniors and individuals with activities of daily living, and the much needed companionship that is so important in the care of mental health. This was extremely in demand over the last few years of 2020 & 2021 due to the Covid19 pandemic as the world experienced it through a birds eye view.
All who have stepped up in this special time and much-needed profession should be rewarded with thanks and praise for the important work they do. Whether it’s bathing, cooking their meals, or even grocery shopping, a caregiver can offer an important role for seniors who otherwise would not be able to continue living on their own. Continuous living with as much independence or simply in an environment that would normally not allow a senior to maintain (in their home) is a true gift.
How do Seniors benefits from caregivers?:
Caregivers provide many benefits to seniors and their families. Here are just a few of the benefits we can think of:
Age In Place: In-home caregivers offer seniors the independence they need to age in place. Helping with laundry, cooking, medication reminders, personal care, and more so that seniors can remain at home and continue their daily routine. Most seniors don’t want to move into a long term facility, and a caregiver can give them the option to remain at home.
Peace of mind: Many family members may worry about their loved ones, especially if they don’t live nearby. A caregiver can provide family members and seniors the peace of mind they deserve. Caregivers can be with seniors to help keep them safe and healthy. Having a caregiver you trust with your loved one can be a huge relief.
Overall Cost: Hiring a caregiver 24/7 is often cheaper than moving into a facility. Seniors can also choose to hire caregivers for specific hours, so they get care when they need it instead of paying for hours of care that they might not need. In-home care may be supplemented in your insurance policy, for reduced cost.
Attention All Caregivers:
On behalf of Senior Protection, its staff, customers and all affiliates, please accept our complete appreciation for everything you do. Your dedication and support to your job, your customers can only be explained as true heroism.
Caring for another individual is one of the most noble acts anyone can perform and continue to do throughout one’s life. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
