Resources for Caregiving Advice

You know you may rely upon Next Day Access of Detroit for home accessibility solutions, excellent financing options and prompt service.

But to whom do you turn for counsel on caregiving and the issues related to it? Sure, Next Day Access of Detroit, your locally-owned and locally-operated provider of home accessibility solutions, can help with stair lifts, ramps and grab bars, but those are features added to the dwelling to mitigate physical limitations, facilitate bathing and handle transport issues. What of the day-to-day strains and stresses, the difficulties both physical and emotional?

The National Institute on Aging at NIH provides numerous resources for caregivers. NIA’s offerings are amazing, with publications, websites, books, 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 provides a trove 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 directory of 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 overwhelmed by their circumstances and adrift, without support. Next Day Access of Detroit 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.
