San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) November 01, 2013
According to a Johns Hopkins-led study, those who assist a chronically-ill or disabled family member enjoy an 18 percent survival advantage compared to statistically-matched non-caregivers.
“Taking care of a chronically-ill person in your family is often associated with stress, and caregiving has been previously linked to increased mortality rates,” says first author David L. Roth, Ph.D., director of the Johns Hopkins University Center on Aging and Health.
Senior Home2Home provides housing and senior placement services. They specialize in referring senior elderly housing options such as Alzheimers and other related dementia care, hospice care, geriatric care, assisted living, and nursing home care.
Seniors and their families deserve to know their options. These decisions do not have to be made alone. Most big decisions involve feedback and advice from professionals. Finding the right options for an elderly loved one is no different. Senior Home2Home helps families avoid becoming overwhelmed and being unable to make the best long-term decisions. When adult children are faced for the first time with assisting their parents, the role-reversal can be quite emotional. By bringing in a third party, it allows the family to work more cohesively towards common goals. Senior Home2Home is committed to flexibility around work schedules and needs.
