Resources for Caregiving Advice

Next Day Access is the place to turn for home accessibility solutions, excellent financing and dependable service.

But where do you go for advice on caregiving and the issues that come with it? Sure, Next Day Access can help with stair lifts, ramps and grab bars, but those are features added to the home to ease physical limitations, facilitate bathing and handle transport issues. What about the actual day-to-day stresses, the difficulties both physical and emotional?

The National Institute on Aging at NIH provides numerous resources for caregivers. NIA’s offerings are amazing – publications, websites, and other resources – that offer information and advice for family caregivers. Many are based on the results of scientific research that have been “translated” into practice.

The website, at https://www.nia.nih.gov/health/featured/caregiving yields a boundless array of fact-filled articles that cover almost every situation or problem that arises in home care. There are AgePages with a variety of topics, a list of books, booklets and fact sheets and links to other helpful tools, such as webinars. The site also has extensive information relative to Alzheimer’s and dementia, along with Medicare information for caregivers.

Caregivers can often feel alone and overwhelmed by their circumstances. Next Day Access is happy to offer accessibility solutions that retrofit the home for safety and comfort, and we’re also pleased to refer caregivers to a website filled with top-notch research and helpful counsel.

Remember, you are not alone. And every job becomes easier when one is armed with the proper tools.
