LSS Seeks Volunteers to Offer a Break to Family Caregivers
Jenni Worcester understands the importance of volunteering and the positive impact it can have on the older adults she spends her time with. She has spent the last two years volunteering her time to families in her community for several reasons.
“Providing respite care in my community improves the lives of caregivers and care receivers because caregivers get tired and stressed not because they dislike taking care of their loved one, but it is a hard job for anyone and taking care of someone you love dearly is that much harder,” says Worcester. Caregivers not getting time for self-care, or a break can cause a strain in their relationships. When I go to a family’s home and the caregiver leaves for a few hours and returns, it is amazing to visually notice the weight lifted off a caregiver’s shoulders.”
