Why Approach an In-Home Caregivers Agency

With the American population aging rapidly, there has been a significant increase in the demand for in-home caregiving. Although homecare is consistently found to be the preferred option of seniors, it is a form of care which often places a large amount of unintended strain on the patient’s loved ones.

This is not a problem to be underestimated, as the phenomenon of “caregiver distress” is a condition that is becoming as frequent as it is harmful. The high level of responsibility and the sheer pressure in caring for a loved one can have unfortunate consequences for the caregiver.

 According to one recent study on this subject, there were indications of depression in more than half of the caregivers entrusted with providing care to individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s. Often, this immense burden of caregiving can result in physical symptoms as well, including diabetes, heart disease, and other dangerous conditions.

Moreover, this is by no means a small minority of in-home caregivers. Thirty-seven percent of caregivers reported experiencing depression, while a whopping seventy-four percent reported sensations of severe fatigue. Nearly one out of three in-home caregivers gained weight while caregiving.

Certain individuals are more liable to experience these immense levels of stress, including women who are more likely to experience an increase in their blood sugar and insulin levels, worse cholesterol, and higher levels of psychological distress. Caregivers who themselves are dealing with their own medical conditions are also more likely to develop negative symptoms as a result of increased stress.

Fortunately, there is an affordable alternative form of in-home caregiving, and that is to seek out the help of a homecare agency. In recent years, technological advancements have enabled an extremely high level of care at low costs to seniors and their loved ones. Agencies can provide the care that seniors require, without experiencing any unintended stress that currently plagues many caregivers.


  1. All great points. Family relationships can often become strained through caregiving, and those being cared for often pick up on this and feel guilty for requiring help. As an elderly family nears passing, the last thing anyone wants is to remember this relationship as stressful or negative. A professional in-home caregiver allows family members to really enjoy the final years of their loved ones' lives, knowing that they are being taken care of.

  5. It seems like it can be a relief to family members who are care givers for their loved ones with Alzheimer's or dementia. I've been trying to take care of my mother with dementia for the past five years on my own. Taking care of her can be a bit much for me. It seems like going to an in-home care agency would help me to take care of my mother, so that I won't feel so overwhelmed.

  7. For those people whose relative are suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease and maybe reading this, I find it hard that people are still ignorant of herbal medicine when it comes to treating Alzheimer’s Disease.
    I have been through many phases over the last couple of years since my father's diagnosis, he was 53 years old and had Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease and his diagnosis changed my life in many ways, I spend most of the time in denial and I keep thinking the tests were wrong. But deep down I knew they were correct. Though sharing his story is very difficult. He was always very successful in being able to accomplish anything he set his mind on doing. Alzheimer’s is a bitch of a disease. It began by robbing his recent memory, but it didn't stop there. It continues to steal, taking the most recent memories until it has pilfered all but the oldest memories, he experienced a decline in his ability to think, remember and make decisions. I feel a need to express my thoughts and feelings about how it affected his day to day living and how its deteriorated since despite the help of some wonderful medics and medicine.
    I remind myself how lucky to come across Charanjit rychtova's herbal medicine which is able to control this disease without any side effect, I felt a moment of relief hoping that he is free from this ailment, and nothing compares to the healing power of nature. Now I believe almost every health problem can be addressed in one natural way or another. The only thing I wanted was for him to feel better. I’m proud to say my Dad is Alzheimer’s free.
