Top 10 Questions
Q1. My parents live in a different state than I do. How do I locate the home care services they need?
A. We suggest contacting the county office of senior services or elder affairs, area adult day centers, and/or local social service agencies. These numbers should be located in the blue pages of the phone book in your parents' local area.
Q2. Are there reputable Web sites where I can find information and resources, and perhaps even some support?
A. There is a vast amount of information on the Internet, so finding trusted, credible sources is key. We have identified the most reputable sources for you to find help.
Q3. A friend of mine is taking care of her mother all by herself. She insists that it's no one's responsibility but her own, but I know she is really overwhelmed. How can I help?
A. You've already taken a giant first step by visiting our Web site — We've designed this site as a way for caregivers to realize the impact that caregiving has on them and to help them understand there is help out there. You can alert your friend to this site.
Q4. My mother died several years ago and my elderly father is no longer able to live by himself. My husband and I have decided to ask him to live with us rather than looking into assisted living sending him to a nursing home, and we want to make sure everything is ready when he comes. What are some of the things we need to anticipate — for his well-being and ours?
A. There will definitely be some adjustments for all of you, so it's a great idea to do some planning prior to your father's arrival. There are many resources available to help you determine what changes may be needed to your home, what caregiving tasks you may be uncomfortable performing, and most importantly, where to look for help.
Q5. My sisters and brothers have left me with all the responsibilities of caring for my aging parent. Any suggestions on how I can get them involved?
A. We're glad you asked. You'll provide better care for your parent by not trying to do everything yourself.
Q6. I'm feeling really stretched between my job and all the things I need to do for my parent. How do I approach my employer about this situation so that she knows I care about my responsibilities at work as well as those at home?
A. You're not alone! Nearly 60 percent of working caregivers have had to make some sort of adjustment to their work schedule--coming in late or leaving early; dropping back to part-time; passing up promotions. Seventeen percent even take unpaid leaves of absence. Nine percent either take early retirement or leave the workforce entirely.
Some employers have programs to help caregiving employees. Even some small or mid-sized employers offer flex-time or compressed work weeks. Or they may offer brown-bag "lunch and learn" seminars on topics like Alzheimer's or how to deal with caregiving over the holidays. Larger employers may offer enhanced resource and referral programs or even geriatric care manager services to help employees with complex home situations.
At a minimum, the person responsible for Human Resources at your Employer should be able to describe what existing employee benefits may help you to balance your job and your caregiving responsibilities.
Q7. I know I would feel better about taking care of my spouse if I just had an afternoon each week to myself. How can I find organizations that provide respite care?
A. You're right — even an hour or two can make a big difference. Here's a list of some organizations that can help you find respite care in your city.
Q8. There never seems to be enough hours in the day. The second I get a handle on things, some thing new crops up and I feel overwhelmed all over again. What can I do to get stay ahead of things?
A. We have a list of suggestions for managing your time, because every caregiver feels like you do.
Q9. How can I figure out what services my insurance will cover?
A. Unless your relative has specific long-term care insurance, many home care needs unfortunately may not be covered. For guidance on dealing effectively with your insurance company and for help finding other resources that may be available for home care, just click the links below.
Q10. I'm concerned that my husband's health care needs are going to cost us all of our savings and we won't have anything left to live on. Is there any help available for financial planning/support in our situation?
A. A lot of caregivers find themselves in this situation. It's important to start thinking about your finances before it's too late. In addition to some private organizations, there are county and state agencies as well as volunteer health agencies that offer financial support programs.
If you're a caregiver, you are not alone. You've probably heard that before, but you may not know just how much company you have. A recent study by the National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP found that 44.4 million Americans age 18 or older are providing unpaid care to an adult. If we had to pay for this care, it would cost approximately $257 billion per year.
