Home Care in Cumming Helps Avoid Stress

Cumming is a gem in Georgia, with a fantastic community and plenty of things to do. Cumming was once just 80 acres of land, purchased in the 1830s. A beneficiary of the gold mining industry, Cumming grew early. It continued to grow with its connection to State Route 400, and nowadays it has features beautiful nature, a fairground, and a notable theatre.

When a loved one is no longer able to take care of themselves, many family members find themselves providing the home care that they need in lieu of seeking help from an assisted care facility or nursing home. While you may find providing the home care that your loved one needs immensely rewarding, there's no doubt that the job comes along with stress as well. Taking time for yourself will reduce caretaker fatigue, and avoid unnecessary strain on the relationship that you have with your loved one. It doesn’t matter how wonderful a city can be when you’re not feeling good.

One of the easiest ways to lower the intensity of your stress level during a particularly trying situation is to step out of the moment and practice some deep breathing exercises. Inhaling deeply, holding your breath for three seconds, and then slowly exhaling has been shown to lower blood pressure levels, a contributing factor to the onset of stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline. Deep breathing takes little more than a few seconds, but can have an immense impact on your mentality and sense of self during a stressful time.

Adjusting to your role as a caregiver can be extremely stressful- and there's no shame in admitting that you can't handle it all by yourself. Comfort Keepers of Cumming, GA can provide respite care on a full-time or part-time basis to allow you to take time to catch up on your work, finish errands that you've been meaning to take care of, or even take a vacation.

Remember that no matter how you feel, the most important thing is to ensure that your loved one is safe in their own home. If you feel that you can no longer provide adequate care for your loved one, Comfort Keepers of Cumming, GA can help ensure that your loved one is safe and secure.
