Caregivers, lessen stress by seeking our help

OASIS SENIOR ADVISERS - Seth Dickinson and Breanna NickilaAs the population ages, more caregiving is being provided by people who aren't health care professionals. According to the Mayo Clinic, these informal caregivers provide 80 percent of long-term care in the United States.

A caregiver is anyone who provides help to another person in need, such as an ill spouse or an aging relative.

Caregiving can have many rewards. For most caregivers, being there when a loved one needs you is a core value and something you wish to provide. But a shift in roles and emotions is almost certain. It is natural to feel angry, frustrated, exhausted, alone or sad.

The emotional and physical demands involved with caregiving can strain even the most resilient person.

Here at OASIS Senior Advisors, it's very common for us to receive calls from exhausted caregivers looking for options.

We are both Certified Senior Advisors (CSAs) with extensive knowledge about senior living communities in our area.

At no charge, we meet with you and your loved one to discuss everything from lifestyle to budget. We are well-versed in amenities, availability and activities for all types of senior living options. We select matches based on your loved one's unique needs, then schedule tours, accompany you on the visits and make sure all of your questions are answered.

Whether you are looking for Assisted Living, Independent Living or Memory Care, let us help take the stress off your shoulders and be your guide.
