Caregiver in Tallahassee FL
Hopewell In-Home Senior Care thanked the Alzheimer’s Project for its efforts to assist caregivers who help loved ones battling Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Hopewell presented a check in the amount of $2,500 to Debbie Moroney, Executive Director at the Alzheimer’s Project, to assist their efforts to offer respite for caregivers. “Hopewell understands the stress that caregivers deal with when a family member is experiencing memory loss, and we salute the efforts of The Alzheimer’s Project to offer free respite care to help prevent caregiver burnout,” says Hopewell’s Director of Marketing Brian Moran.
Caregiver burnout is a serious concern for anyone who has a loved one with dementia-related diseases, such as Alzheimer’s. Studies show that taking regular breaks from caregiving duties helps combat the stress of being the primary caregiver. The Alzheimer’s Project hosts several respite rooms around town that offer caregivers an opportunity to drop off their loved one and take a several-hour break to take care of themselves. The Alzheimer’s Project has one of these respite rooms in Killearn United Methodist Church where volunteers care for and engage those with Alzheimer’s in various activities so their caregiver can take a break.
