Home Care Assistance, the country’s only science-based provider of in-home senior care, understands the stresses the family caregiver undergoes regularly and the burnout they experience. The organization has partnered with Maria Shriver’s MOVE FOR MINDS and is offering a break for family caregivers. These grants are for individuals caring for a loved one who need a much deserved break for him or herself.
As MOVE FOR MINDS’ national Caregiving Partner, Home Care Assistance will select 60 caregivers to receive a Respite Care Grant for family caregivers. The grant includes a weekend, or two consecutive days, of respite care to raise awareness of the importance of self-care for family providers and a greater understanding of respite home care services.
“Our care teams have seen firsthand the emotional and physical burnout of family caregivers over our 15-year history,” said Home Care Assistance CEO Lily Sarafan. “When our loved ones are displaying signs and symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s and dementia, it’s natural to focus solely on their needs, but the family caregiver needs personal renewal to be at her best.”
Respite services provide family caregivers with an opportunity to take a break from the daily demands and responsibilities of caregiving. By bringing in professional care – whether for several hours or several days – the family caregiver has a chance to gain perspective and relax. Time away is highly effective in reducing stress, improving sleep and renewing a sense of wellbeing.
Move for Minds™ focuses on the mind/body connection while raising funds to wipe out Alzheimer’s, a disease that disproportionately affects women. Participants will register, raise funds and experience a specially designed brain body workout, a healthy marketplace with brain healthy snacks, and a panel conversation featuring superstars of brain research, fitness, nutrition and more.
Enter to win by visiting the MOVE FOR MINDS™ grant page at http://homecareassistance.com/moveforminds. Tell us about yourself and the person for whom you are providing care, and how you’d like to spend your respite. The first round of winners will be announced on June 4th at MOVE FOR MINDS™ events. Winners need not be present. We are currently accepting submissions through July.
