The home-care agency is ready to take the strain after medical experts advise burnt-out, ailing family caregivers that taking some time off and delegating duties for a while is good for them and positive for loved ones

New York, NY (PRUnderground) January 25th, 2021

Are you a family caregiver in Westchester, NY, who gets angry easily and feels constantly exhausted, or do you even feel like you want to hurt the loved one in your care? These are just some of the signs that indicate you could be suffering from a very real ailment: caregiver stress syndrome.

To preserve your own health and stay at your best for a loved one in your care, a break could be what you urgently need, according to a report published online last month by the Mayo Clinic. And Westchester in-home care agency Touching Hearts at Home NYC is a specialist in the type of respite care that provides relief for family caregiver stress.

“Don’t forget that you must take care of yourself before you put more energy into caring for others. You can’t provide the best care if you aren’t your best self,” Touching Hearts NYC owner Craig Sendach said in a commentary published last week.

From Scarsdale to Lincolndale, and Mamaroneck to Mohegan Lake, Touching Hearts NYC offers flexible, customizable home-care solutions across the New York county of Westchester to fit just about any situation family caregivers face. Whether you need 24-hour home care for a senior or a few hours a week of in-home help for a disabled spouse, the home care agency can work with you to tailor an affordable package that relieves stress for family caregivers.

The COVID 19 pandemic has worsened the effects of loneliness for many seniors and others isolated at home across Westchester and New York because close contact raises risk of infection. Family caregivers play an invaluable and underappreciated role in maintaining the well-being of seniors and other loved ones in this situation. Most family caregivers give the care selflessly and fail to recognize how the effort taxes their own physical and mental health, the Mayo Clinic report says.

Leaving an elderly or infirm family member in the care of someone else might not seem like the right course of action. But for a stressed family caregiver to take a break and rekindle interest in leisure pursuits “can be one of the best things you do for yourself – as well as the person you’re caring for,” the report says.

In his commentary, Craig Sendach mentions various other strategies for dealing with caregiver stress syndrome. While the ultimate solution, respite care, might seem like an indulgence to the committed family caregiver in Westchester, Touching Hearts NYC can help find ways to do what’s best for loved ones and be kind to yourself at the same time – at a cost more affordable than most would imagine for home care.

The chances are that a Westchester home with a stressed family caregiver might require help that would be considerably less than 24-hour in-home care, but the caregiver may be concerned about housework or making meals, for example, while they are absent and taking a break. Touching Hearts NYC can take the strain while the caregiver relaxes. The in-home care agency’s well-trained home caregivers are handy with a duster and can turn out a tasty meal that fits prescribed nutritional requirements, as well as being capable in a range of other tasks.

All home care is arranged as required and tailored to a client’s needs and means through free consultation with Touching Hearts NYC.
