What Are the Signs You Need Support Services?

Every caregiving situation is different, whether older adults or adults with disabilities are involved. Some of the signs that your family could use additional caregiver assistance include:
Signs You Need Support Services
  • Your loved one has multiple medical or mental health challenges
  • Your loved one needs numerous health services you currently have trouble accessing
  • Your loved one cannot live safely in their current environment
  • You lack adequate financial assistance
  • You are burned out and stressed
  • Your loved one is struggling to get the medical care they need
  • You no longer have time for leisure activities
  • You have neglected your professional or personal responsibilities
  • You feel constantly tired or run down
  • You are confused by aspects of care, like the Medicaid program or personal care services

  • You have limited time
