According to your task definition request and the whole picture of caregivers situations, problems, solutions and ideas (from the initial shock to the ongoing difficult caregiving process and up to resolution (recovery or death) of the caregiving process) I realized 4 levels for providing assistance: practical support, support in education, spiritual support and financial support. Each of them is very complex and it is necessary to provide much more details. I know that website is not part of task definition, but it was the way I used to explain whole process how to help them on each level. So you can find much more details on http://jstambolic.wixsite.com/respitecare
We care for the caregiver.
Describe a caregiver situation that you were/are involved in.
This project takes me back to the past when my close family was two times in caregiving situations so I try to go step by step through all phases of our life. My dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer at the age of 55. My grandmother had a stroke at the age of 65. Their deaths were very stressful to me.
Explain the caregiver problem that resulted for you and/or other caregiver(s).
There are so many problems: with my grandmother: a lack of sleep; constant care if something goes wrong; I was trying to help her with exercises and I did not want to give up, but this was very painful for her; to maintain hygiene is difficult too; with my dad was totally different – it was ten-year period; dementia process went so slowly in the beginning but at the end sometimes he couldn`t recognize me
Describe your caregiver solution that would provide assistance or relief to the problem of the caregiver.
My solution is to help caregivers at every level in their lives through team support: practically in day living system, with education because they don`t know what to do, with friendly listening support and of course with financial problems. My idea is to look at the whole picture of the problem.
