Owner of Home Instead Senior Care Edmonton, CPCA

The emotional strain of tending to a senior with Alzheimer’s or who is on hospice care, threatens to deplete your health on emotional, mental, and physical levels. If you are part of the Sandwich Generation, those caring for their own family in addition to a parent, you may feel you can never catch a break.
