Caregiver Support

Caring for an aging loved one whose health is declining or who has developed dementia or Alzheimer’s is no easy task. At Evergreen Senior Living, we commend friends and family for their efforts in caring for their loved ones, and we are dedicated to helping them provide the best care possible from their home. The stress of being the primary caregiver for an aging relative can be extremely high as many question their abilities: Did I make the right decision? Am I providing a safe environment? If you ask yourself these questions often, you may benefit from a support group made up of other caregivers in the same situation.


Caregiver support groups create a space for sharing information, advice and encouragement amongst caregivers. They provide an opportunity to meet those who face similar challenges, allowing discussion about your experiences. You can gain perspective and caregiver tools that come from hearing others talk about their experiences.


Look for established caregiver support groups at our Evergreen Senior Living campuses. Ask about support groups for specific conditions. Find memory loss and Alzheimer’s support groups if your loved one is experiencing Alzheimer’s symptoms


Caregiver support groups are great if you need a break from your responsibilities. One advantage is that members from the same area are familiar with local resources and may better understand some of the challenges you face. In addition, taking time off to attend an Alzheimer's support group breaks up your routine, exposes you to new people and allows you time to unwind.


Remember, being a caregiver is not for everyone. Your loved ones’ needs may be too great for you to meet while still upholding your other responsibilities of work and family. Asking for help from a full-time care facility is always a hard decision, but one we can help you transition through. And, the stress of being the primary caregiver usually diminishes, enabling you to enjoy your relationship with your loved one in a safe and supportive environment. It’s time to start caring for the caregiver. Contact us today to find out more information.
