Are you a family caregiver for an elderly loved one? Perhaps you found yourself unprepared to perform medical tasks because the role of caregiving was suddenly thrust upon you. According to a caregiver report (2015), about 62% of family members face elder care without any sort of formal training whatsoever. Family caregivers who are at highest risk for health decline are the unpaid caregivers who perform elder care tasks for long periods of time, those who live with their elderly loved ones and those who have to perform nursing tasks. Here are some signs that you may need professional in-home care services:
- Social withdrawal
- Loss of interest in favorite hobbies
- Suicidal tendencies
- Abnormal eating patterns
- Sleep disruption or insomnia
- Weakened immune system
