Taking care of an invalid family member is a very physically and emotionally stressful job and finding time for a vacation or short break can be difficult.  An organization, "Visiting Angels," provides experienced caregivers who can step in to give you a little respite.  Shannon Bennett with "Visiting Angels" says it's easy to get burned out with the stress of caring for another person.  "You can get ill or injure yourself. So really, it's best if you can have a scheduled person to come in to relieve you. So if you could take a couple days off a week, and then you're able to be that family member again, you're not the caregiver, you can step away from that situation and just really be that spouse or child. Which is very important."  Bennett says they can even help out if your family member is already in an assisted living place or nursing home.  For more information about "Visiting Angels," we have a link to their website on our "links" page here.
