When it comes to providing care for an elderly loved one, this responsibility can be tough to take on — both mentally and physically. It is difficult to see a loved one struggle, but families want the best for their loved ones which is why some provide care for their elderly relatives themselves.

However, providing care involves a lot of time, energy, and effort, because being a family caregiver is essentially like taking on another full-time job.

Assisting Hands Home Care in Chicago, IL, can help family caregivers with our respite care services, giving them a much-needed break while allowing their loved ones to still get the care they require.

Informal Caregiving

Although it is noble, providing a loved one with care from a family caregiver is difficult to do. Informal caregivers need to provide such care before and/or after work and during time that is meant to be spent relaxing or doing leisurely activities.

Being an informal caregiver for a loved one also means seeing them struggle with everyday activities, so it’s understandable for family members to want to provide care themselves. Otherwise, they may feel guilty about not helping. However, such a workload can easily make one’s life stressful.


In the United States, there are millions of people who provide their loved ones with informal care. Of them, about 2/3 are women, and about 1/4 of informal caregivers in the U.S. have reported that their own health conditions are poor or just fair. The reasons for this can be explained by the following:

  • Stress: Being an informal caregiver is basically like having another job, which is already tough and stressful enough. But consider the emotional connection, and it’s even more difficult.
  • Lack of Sleep and Restlessness: When you’re stressed, it’s common to lack sleep and have a restless mind. If you don’t take care of yourself, you might find yourself burnt out.
  • Professional Respite Care

    Assisting Hands Home Care in Chicago, IL, provides respite care services to give informal caregivers a necessary break. We know the stressful nature that comes with being a caregiver and we can help with our well-trained, qualified caregivers, giving you peace of mind.
