Overcome Caregiver Stress with a Helping Hand
Caregiver stress is real. We all know that the demands of caregiving can be overwhelming. If the stress of caregiving is left unchecked, it can take a toll on our health, relationships and state of mind, eventually leading to burnout. EG Helping Hand Services, LLC helps caregivers take the time needed for their own health. The professional services with a personal touch create individual packages of care for each client’s needs.
“When we’re burned out, it’s tough to do anything, let alone look after someone else. That’s why taking care of yourself isn’t a luxury, it is necessary,” explains Elaine Gerwin, owner of EG Helping Hand Services, LLC. With her extensive social work background, Gerwin realized there were people—especially seniors—falling through the cracks when it came to general help with their daily needs.
Many seniors are facing selling their homes to move into a smaller location, but have no idea where to begin due to their families living out of state. That’s where EG Helping Hand Services comes in to help people with daily errands, or managing staff that comes in and out of their homes while in the process of helping them downsize, so they can concentrate on transitioning into their new locations.
