No matter the physical condition of their loved one, it is often difficult for family members to accept that they are not able to be the sole caregiver. At Ginter Hall South we understand these emotions.
We know how difficult it can be for a family member serving as a caregiver to step back and realize that if others are able to provide the meals, housekeeping, activity programs and Activities of Daily Living services such as, toileting, bathing, and dressing, the time family members do have available to spend with their loved ones can be of higher quality.
Having this separation of daily support for the senior promotes dignity and enables the resident to focus on more positive aspects of daily life when they do visit with family members. The support needed for senior residents is a 24-hours a day, seven days a week effort and very difficult for a sole family caregiver to provide, particularly if they have never had this experience in the past.
