Nature of Caregiving

Nature of Caregiving
Caregiving takes many forms. Many of us help older, sick, or disabled family members and friends every day. We know we are helping, but we don't think of ourselves as caregivers. We are glad to do this and feel rewarded by it, but if the demands are heavy, over time we can also become exhausted and stressed. We think we should be able to handle caregiving roles on top of busy work and family schedules and begin to feel guilty and depressed as our stamina wanes.

Nature of caregiving

About 44 million Americans provide 37 billion hours of unpaid, "informal" care each year for adult family members and friends with chronic illnesses or conditions that prevent them from handling daily activities such as bathing, managing medications or preparing meals on their own.

Testimonials

Thank you so much for the wonderful care you gave my mother. I really appreciate all that you did!

Faith G.

I cannot say enough about this agency!! From the owners, Jennie and Ross to their care givers, they are top notch! They have been caring for my dad for some time now. They are compassionate, respectful, and patient and treat him with the dignity that he deserves. They have pretty much become part of the family.

SI HomeCare came into our lives at a very stressful time. Right from the first phone call, when they assured me they could help, it was like a huge weight had been lifted. The two aides that came in to take care of my Mother were wonderful.
