The primary way to avoid caregiver burnout is for family caregivers to take time for themselves. By keeping a family caregivers physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual lives active and engaged, a family caregiver can maintain a balance in their life. This balance helps fight off burnout. Sadly, many family caregivers feel that they cannot take time away from their loved one and their balance tips dangerously to one side. With professional in home care support from Comfort Keepers, family caregivers can feel confident that their loved one will receive the quality care they need and deserve. Best of all, Comfort Keepers provides this support in the convenience of the senior's own home.

While a family caregiver is away, a Comfort Keepers caregiver can prepare meals, assist with feeding and positioning, provide incidental transportation and more. During this time, a caregiver can also provide Alzheimer's care or dementia care.
