Are you aware more than 65 million Americans are responsible for not only the demands of work, children and home are also caring for someone who is aging, ill or disabled? For most, managing all of these tasks feels overwhelming and takes away from their personal enjoyment of life. Because of this, family members and friends are experiencing what many understand as feeling “burnt out” – in a state of emotional, physical and mental exhaustion. When families or friends are trying to provide an individual with more care they are able to handle, in-home care is a viable option.
