So many caregivers find that more than one of their aging relatives need help and they’re the one who has to step in. But is it really possible for you to be a caregiver for more than one aging family member? If you’re taking care of yourself and addressing situations as they arise, it’s definitely possible.

Pay Attention to All Your Feelings
Keep the Lines of Communication Open
Get as Much Help as You Can
One of the groups you’ll want to communicate with as much as you can is going to be home care providers. As much as you may want and expect other family members to pitch in and help, the reality is often very different from your expectations. Hiring home care providers allows you to have assistance for your seniors when they need it, not just when you’re able to be there. Help from senior care also allows you to take much-needed time away from caregiving so you can recharge.
