Senior Care for Respite in Newport Beach

Sometimes, it's hard for us to look objectively at our mental states. Things are just confusing when you, a senior caregiver are in the middle, especially when your focus is on someone who is ill. WebMD makes things easier on caregivers who are demonstrating signs of distress with a simple checklist of mental and physical red flags that point to caregiver stress. These include:

Feeling tired most of the time
Feeling overwhelmed and irritable
Sleeping too much or too little
Gaining or losing a lot of weight
Losing interest in activities you used to enjoy

Caregiver stress can be a symptom of depression, a medical disorder that gets worse without treatment. A-1 Home Care recommends that family caregivers ask their doctor if such feelings persist. In the meantime, our Newport Beach Senior Caregivers are available to provide respite care. Seniors living in Newport BeachLaguna BeachCorona Del MarFountain ValleyHuntington BeachSeal BeachLos Alamitos, and others cities in Orange County should give us a call asap.
