Don’t be afraid to ask for help, whether it’s for yourself or for the person you’re caring for.
If you can’t give as much time to caring as you’d like to, you might want to think about respite care for the person you’re taking care of. This can be just a short stay in an aged care home so you can take a break. If they’re already in an aged care home and you think they need more support, you can ask the home if you can pay for extra staff hours to help.
If you’re concerned the person you’re caring for is experiencing pain or other symptoms, talk to medical and nursing professionals about your concerns.
