Part IV: All Care Resources-An Alternative to Caregiver Burnout

Did you know that 9 out of 10 seniors wish to die at home but in actuality about 7 in 10 seniors die in a hospital or skilled nursing facility? And did you know that more seniors enter skilled nursing homes due to caregiver burnout than exacerbations of their own conditions? Those are some scary things to think about. With over 50 million Americans currently acting in a nonpaid caregiver role and the elderly population growing larger and living longer, the complications of caregiving are growing at an equal rate.

Emotional and physical symptoms of caregiver stress can be identified and there are strategies one can incorporate into their daily life to help manage or control caregiver stress. But what if 30 minutes of alone time a day isn’t enough? What if you have a business trip that would take you out of state for three days? What happens when you exhaust your annual FMLA benefit? Where do you go then? What happens from there? The answer, most likely, can be found at the other end of a phone call to All Care Resources.
