Managing Caregiver Stress
At the Sagora Senior Living communities, we see firsthand the stress placed on caregivers in regards to not only taking care of their senior loved one but also in the emotional stress of finding the right community. We then assist and prepare them for the transition. Making sure all of the details are sorted; finding out who is going to assist with the move; what are they going to be able to take with them since they may be downsizing; and managing the caregiver stress that comes from not knowing if they are making the right decision.
Our community associates are here to help you with your concerns, no matter what point in the journey you are at. Below are a list of the top 10 questions and concerns we hear from our family caregivers.
