Caregivers of aging parents face many challenges. One of those challenges is finding a safe space where loved ones can get the day-to-day assistance and supervision they require while family caregivers work outside of the home, run errands or take an occasional, much-needed break.
This dilemma can be tough for family caregivers. Apprehension or guilt may make one reluctant to seek outside help. Aging parents, suffering with cognitive or physical impairments or failing health, may also resist assistance from non-familial caregivers.
