With more and more Baby Boomers retiring, many young adults are increasingly finding themselves in the complicated position of taking care of their own family and their parents. Their days juggle numerous activities that make them swing from one end to the other. One moment they are watching a ballet recital and the next they are picking up prescriptions for their parent while shopping for groceries on the way! Not only do these caregivers need to attend to their spouses, children, and elderly family members, but they may also have a boss they need to report to in their professional life.
The result is an increasing number of caregivers who are stressed, overwhelmed, overburdened and continually struggling to balance the demands on their time. Too often, they end up putting their own health at risk. At Home Instead Senior Care Etobicoke, we provide in-home senior care that allows you peace of mind knowing that your parent is in safe hands while you take a moment to sit back and rejuvenate.
