For many families, Black Friday is an extension of the Thanksgiving holiday. Many stay up all night, standing in long lines trying to nab the best deals of the year. It’s a rush! If you enjoy the hype of Black Friday, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t enjoy it this year, even if you have the important role of a caregiver. The question is, then, how do you find help for your elderly parent at odd hours right around the holiday?
Respite Services: There When You Need Them
In-home care services are available for situations just like this – no questions asked! If you want to go out and enjoy the experience of Black Friday and take advantage of great deals, you deserve every bit of it. Unfortunately, caregivers often have a hard time admitting that they need help and they deprive themselves of much-needed personal time. This does not have to be you – and you don’t have to feel guilty!
The nice thing about in-home care is that you don’t have to uproot your loved one or explain why they have to sit in an adult daycare center while you go out. They can remain in their home with their favorite things by their side and no interruption to their daily routine. Yet instead of you being there to care for them, you will have a trained and qualified caregiver for a few hours. This gives you a break when you need it without having a lapse of care for your loved one.
Flexible and Stress-Free Help
In-home care services are very helpful over the holiday season when caregivers have even more to think about. Whether it’s taking time out to wrap presents, volunteer at a toy drive or get your hair cut and colored, you shouldn’t feel pressured to squeeze these things into your schedule. Also, don’t forget that you need some fun, too. Imagine how much happier you will be if you nab that purse you’ve been wanting for half price?!
