We're pleased to offer a variety of options for our senior home care in Chicago to meet your specific needs:
Spending quality time with your spouse, partner or significant other is important. However, since much of your time is spent caring for a loved one, you may be more likely to take rain checks on date night. Synergy HomeCare, providers of in home care in Chicago, IL and the surrounding communities, can be there to help your loved one while you enjoy a night out. We will assign a caregiver for your loved one who can attend to his/her evening care needs.
Date night does not have to be with a romantic partner. Going to dinner or attending an event with a group of friends is also a great way to enjoy your night. Being social can combat feelings of loneliness or depression. Talking with companions can be a good way to get frustrations off of your chest. When you return home, you can feel better about your role as a family caregiver and continue to provide compassionate care for your loved one.
Many family caregivers feel guilty about leaving a loved one, as if a caregiver should not be able to have fun while a loved one is having a hard time. Feeling this way is normal, but know that it is okay to leave for a few hours when your loved one is in capable hands. In fact, it is recommended by professionals to help renew the spirit of providing care for your loved one.
