    Firstat Nursing Services, a Rancho Bernardo home health and San Diego in-home skilled nursing agency participates in National Family Caregivers Month.

    “Taking care of loved ones is an honor, but it is also a big job. It is a job that gets very tiring and can be emotionally draining,” said Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services in San Diego, CA.

    “The emotional toll is even higher as caregivers feel the pressure of daily tasks and then feel guilty for being tired or wanting a break. November is National Family Caregivers Month in honor of the over 60 million people who take care of loved ones through the tough times of illness or aging,” continued Goodrich.

    Here are ways people can help out the people who give tirelessly of their time and finances to make sure all of the members of the family have the safe and healthy support they need.

    Support with Chores - Family caregivers often have their own families to take care of in addition to the elderly or ill family members they are taking care of. The difficulty of taking care of two households gets overwhelming, and other family members can lighten that load by offering to do simple cleaning chores at either home, cooking meals for the caregiver’s family while they are attending to the needs of the sick or elderly family member.

    If the caregiver has children, making arrangements to run after school errands or helping with homework can take a lot off of the mind of the caregiver. If family members are not in the vicinity to provide physical help, getting the assistance of a home health care nurse to help out with the elderly or sick family member, or even with the caregiver’s family is an invaluable help.

    Give Caregivers the Day Off - Unlike the normal jobs most people have, care-giving is a 7 day a week job, sometimes 24 hours a day. The routine can be quite exhausting. Helping caregivers out by employing the assistance of a home health care nursing service so the loved ones get the care they need while the family caregiver takes a much needed break is a great way to help them stay fresh and feeling good about the service they provide.

    Make Use of Home Health Care Agencies - Temporary care-giving to help relatives recover from an illness has an expiration date that a caregiver can look to as a release from the daily duty. When a loved one is going to require long-term or permanent care in the case of senior citizens or a family member with a chronic illness, the needs of constant care is sometimes too much to ask of anyone.

    That is when it makes the most sense to hire a Rancho Bernardo home health care agency to provide the medical, personal and emotional care in a professional manner. Home health care nurses are trained to deliver high-quality care and offer senior citizens and shut-ins with the help they need while maintaining their dignity and sense of self-worth. Home health care nurses can visit daily, as needed, or even live-in to make sure loved ones get the care they need to be safe and healthy.
