Caring for someone with a disability
September 12, 2017
Taking care of someone with a disability can be physically and emotionally exhausting. Those young and old with a disability rely on the support of friends and family. Feeling overwhelmed or stressed is normal, being a caregiver is a hard job! If you do not take care of yourself, you won’t be able to help anyone else. There are plenty of people out there in your situation and there are a lot of services and support to help you as the caregiver.

“My husband has Parkinsons, despite having 9 grown children, none were around to help me. I am thankful for the patience and kindness shown to me by the entire staff at Guardian Angels. Both Barbara and Alesia are wonderful aides, I couldn't have kept Bob at home without them. They really are Guardian Angels!”
