Caregiver Help Radio – In Home Help for Caregivers

Would anyone expect an employee to work around the clock, seven days a week, 52 weeks a year with no breaks, no vacation, no pay, and no benefits? Of course not. Even robots require down time for maintenance. So why would anyone think a family caregiver should be able to meet all of the needs of a loved one who is living at home? Join us as we talk to Bobbie Bowles and Patti Saunders, sisters and business partners in a Home Instead Franchise in Salem, OR. We’ll talk about the benefits and challenges of hiring care providers to assist aging, chronically ill, and disabled individuals with non-medical needs. Find out what you need to know about hiring people, the types of assistance you can ask for, and tips on how to convince elderly loved ones to accept help.
