Side by Side offers support for families and caregivers of older adults who themselves are coping with “caregiver stress”.
Combining experience and empathy, Side by Side can be an important resource to help you deal with the emotional and spiritual challenges that often accompany an older loved one’s increasing frailty.
Witnessing a loved one’s cognitive or physical decline, having to make difficult decisions regarding present and future courses of care and treatment, dealing with difficult family situations—all of these are significant stressors and can cause caregivers and families to feel physically and emotionally exhausted– which can often lead to feelings of frustration and even despair.
To whom can they turn? Who will understand the heaviness of the burden they carry?
Side by Side offers support services specifically for those who are struggling with these feelings caused by the increasing frailty of an older loved one. A “companion for the latter stretch of life’s road”
