Many caregivers for a loved one face stress, anxiety, exhaustion and frustration. The caregiver’s physical and emotional health usually suffers; their relationships with other family members and friends often get neglected. If this sounds like your situation, we understand. You need relief; you need an occasional break. The Day Club offers you short or long-term solutions to your need to work, have time for personal business, and a chance to rest and recover.
At Open Arms, we care about the caregivers just as we do the care recipients. We know the challenges you face every day — and every night. Without the necessary knowledge, skills, resources and back-up support, you face the common risk of “caregiver burnout,” and possible physical or mental health symptoms of your own. Our Day Club can offer you the peace of mind you need to work, take care of personal business, and rest and recover.
Reach out for help. Join a support group to ensure a regular link with other caregivers. Relieve your stress and gain valuable information by sharing your experiences with others. Consider and take all options to get occasional “rest, relaxation and respite”, so you can continue your caregiving role.
