November is National Family Caregivers Month! As a senior advisor at North Star Senior Advisors, I have met and spoke to numerous people struggling to care for a family member. Several times a day, we hear the sacrifice they endure, and while it is a wonderful thing to be able to help care for mom or dad at home where they feel most comfortable, in some cases, this can become strenuous on the family caregiver as they may get pulled away from other responsibilities. Every day we help families looking for advice and support with their loved ones. We are truly grateful to offer that support and guidance whether it is options for senior living or resources available to them. For those that are not ready and would like to keep their loved one at home, I encourage you to take a moment to read this article below. I came across this article by a woman named Barbra Cohn, who shared her experience when caring for her husband who developed Alzheimer’s early on. Her story is very touching and because of her experience and compassion, she was able to offer tips to reduce stress and improve the quality of life when caring for a family member.
