Welcome to the New Age of Caregiving
Senior Holistic Living is a comforting resource for caregivers who are seeking guidance, encouragement, and more balance in their life. We are a reminder that caregiving does not have to be a mindless duty . . . that it can, in fact, be a mindful opportunity for the caregiver’s own growth. Our approach honors the caregivers’ needs, allowing them to remain centered amidst both the challenges and joys of their role. We help caregivers listen to their inner voice, be authentic, and trust themselves to make the best decisions.
If you need advice or have unanswered questions, our recommended resources will be both helpful and reassuring. If you yearn to feel more connected to your feelings and thoughts but are not quite sure how to make it happen, allow us to lend a hand. And if you simply seek respite during a time of crisis, we can help you find peace. We’ll show you how to create balance and minimize stress so that you can make better and more conscious decisions.
Many caregivers become isolated, and the stress can quickly become unbearable. Each situation and circumstance is unique; however, some caregivers experience symptoms of burnout that may include:
- feeling overwhelmed
- feeling physically or emotionally exhausted
- becoming easily irritated/angered
- loss of interest in activities you used to enjoy
- frequent headaches, stomach aches, or other physical problems
- abuse of alcohol or drugs, including prescription drugs
- changes in eating habits—resulting in significant weight gain or loss
Despite its challenges, caregiving is a personal journey full of revelations that give you the power to transform suffering into strength and peace. If you’re ready to follow the path towards self-discovery and empowerment, please contact us.
