First, let’s recognize that caregiving is HARD. Whether you are personally caring for your mother or father or other loved one at home, by yourself, and still holding down a full-time job–or whether you’re trying to figure out the maze of organizations and regulations for obtaining home care for that person you love–it’s HARD!
And there are many levels of care, from simple companionship a few hours a week and ensuring nutritious meals or housekeeping to keeping medications straight and full-on caregiving for someone who is ill. No matter what the level, caregiving is stressful–and that stress spills over into your relationship with your loved one.
This year, resolve to release the guilt and the stress. There is no judge who will decide if you are a good daughter or a good son or a good spouse. The only thing you need to do is give yourself a well-deserved pat on the back for taking on the vital and challenging role of providing and finding appropriate care for your loved one.
Just like every aspect of life, caregiving can be a messy proposition. Whether you are the solo caregiver or have brought in private duty home care or you’re coordinating with medical and hospice teams, too, none of this progresses in crisp, linear fashion. Once you can accept that, your life (and that of your loved one) will be easier and calmer.
Support is huge. You may find that hiring a private duty home care worker–even for just a few hours per week–gives you the space you need to decompress. That time can also be spent attending support group meetings for caregivers, and those meetings will help you discover that you are not alone. Others are dealing with the same issues and may have solutions you’d never thought of. Just being among a group who is experiencing the same thing you are is both therapeutic and helpful.
Next Level Nursing Solutions offers professional, competent, and compassionate private duty home care. Choose the level of care that’s right for your loved one as well as the frequency and number of hours that are necessary.

FACTS ABOUT HOME HEALTH CARE
Home health care is sometimes misunderstood. We thought it would be helpful to share some facts about home health care from Medicare.
Home health care is a wide range of health care services that can be given in your home for an illness or injury. Home health care is usually less expensive, more convenient, and just as effective as care you get in a hospital or skilled nursing facility (SNF).
Examples of skilled home health services include:
If you have a Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) policy or other health insurance coverage, tell your doctor or other health care provider so your bills get paid correctly.
If your doctor or referring health care provider decides you need home health care, they should give you a list of agencies that serve your area. They must tell you whether their organization has a financial interest in any agency listed.
What should I expect from my home health care?
HOME HEALTH CARE
Private duty home health care is on the minds of many older people, as well as their adult children. So many times, all a person needs is just a little boost: some help with housework or dishes or meal preparation. Or maybe the parent is recovering from a fall, or surgery, or a hospital stay and just needs another set of hands and eyes–or someone to just sit and visit.
It’s a fact that insurance seldom pays for private duty home health care. Another fact is that it is nearly impossible to find private duty, in-home health care.
Well, we’re here to help.
