November is National Family Caregivers (NFC) Month. It is a time to recognize and honor family caregivers across the country. Observing NFC raises awareness for family caregiver issues, celebrates the efforts of family caregivers, educates family caregivers about self-identification, and increases support for family caregivers. In other words, it’s a time to care for the caregivers!
In the greater Delray Beach, Boca Raton, and Boynton Beach area, we know that family caregiving is often an unpaid, and thanks-less job; not done out of obligation, but out of love! BrightStar Care of Delray Beach® knows how overwhelming the responsibility of finding quality care can be; and we know that healthcare is never "one-size fits all." Each member of our team is committed to delivering A Higher Standard of Care for each and every family in our Community. We believe it is our mission to ensure you and your loved ones have all the tools and information you need to make the best decision for your family.
Whether you’re a caregiver who is choosing to go it alone, a caregiver who has asked for help, or a caregiver in the middle seeking resources like our free Home Care Planning Guide; know that you have options and resources to help you! The key to being the best caregiver you can be, is remembering to take care of your own health too. Though it may seem like an unattainable and far-fetched goal, taking care of yourself is the only way to ensure that you’ll be around to continue taking care of your loved one!
If you are a family caregiver, remember to take care of your physical health by attending your own Doctor’s Appointments, consider taking care of your emotional health by attending a support group or speaking to a professional, and know that it is okay to ask for help from an accredited Agency such as BrightStar Care of Delray Beach® if the physical demands become too much.
When there is anything you need, at any point in time throughout your decision-making process, please do not hesitate to contact our team; available and able to be reached 24/7 at 561.921.0550. We strive to be the reliable, dependable force you and your family count on when it comes to seeking a higher standard of homecare that has become just too difficult to handle on your own!
