Daughters as Caregivers
Often it is a daughter who assumes the caregiving responsibilities for a parent. Caring for an elderly loved one can be rewarding, but sometimes you can feel overwhelmed. “With Mother’s Day approaching we thought it was the perfect time to express our support and appreciation for women caregivers and their families” explains Janet Callaway, who along with her friend Alice Iseminger, started the local Seniors Helping Seniors in-home services in 2009.
“Our passion is to support seniors and their families and provide employment opportunities for the older workers in our community,” states Alice Iseminger.
“You do not have to feel like you are alone in your caregiving responsibilities,” states Callaway. “We can help relieve your stress and take care of some of those day-to-day tasks so that you can enjoy your time with your loved one.” Our seasoned caregivers understand that familial connection and strive to be an extension of that love and support for the family.
