This week we take a moment to recognize Carers across Canada to raise awareness and bring attention to their significance in Canada.
A Carer, Family Caregiver, Caregiver is a family member or paid helper who regularly looks after a child or a sick, elderly, or disabled person.
As our population ages, more and more family members and friends are unexpectedly stepping into the role of caregiver. Every aging person prefers to live in the comfort of their own home but most of the time in-home care is needed to make this possible. Friends and family who assume the role of caregivers soon realize the position is demanding, time-consuming and overwhelming. Fortunately, there are many trained professionals who can assist those who are struggling.
Family caregivers working together with specialized care partners provide the total care their loved one needs. Access to support and resources make for an easier life for the sick, elderly or disabled.
At Home Care Assistance Vancouver we salute all Carers for their passion and care.
