Resources for Caregiving Advice

You know you may rely on Next Day Access of San Antonio for home accessibility solutions, excellent financing and dependable service.

But where do you turn for advice on caregiving and the issues that come with it? Sure, Next Day Access of San Antonio, your locally-owned and locally-operated provider of home accessibility solutions, can help with portable showers, stair lifts, ramps and grab bars, but those are features added to the home to ease a patient’s physical limitations, facilitate bathing and handle transport issues. What of the daily stresses, the difficulties emotional and physical that accrue to the caregiver?

The National Institute on Aging at NIH offers numerous research opportunities for caregivers. NIA’s publications, websites, and other resources provide 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 trove of information-packed articles covering nearly every situation that pops up 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 might at times feel alone and overwhelmed by their circumstances.
