Easter is a time for families to come together, but it can often be an overwhelming time too. It’s the time of year when families come together, friends stop by to visit, and the vast majority of us experience increased stress trying to coordinate holiday activities in preparation for Easter. This stress is often multiplied for those caring for an elderly parent or loved one.
Carer stress is becoming more common, with concerns increasing as many people begin to spend more time caring for an elderly parent than their own children.
Easter allows time to reflect on our family needs, and is an opportunity to consider the support options for the family into the future. Carers often turn to aged care facilities to assist in providing high quality care for their loved family members.
But aged care may not be the only option available to you, with home care becoming more readily available throughout greater South East Queensland.
These services can relieve carers of stress and concern, knowing that their loved one is receiving high quality care that aims to optimise their quality of life and capacity to live independently. .
