Did you know that most family caregivers are women caring for their aging mothers? This Mother’s Day we honor all of the mothers in our community who work so hard each day to make life more beautiful for those to whom they are providing care. Effective, sustainable, kind and gentle caregiving depends on meeting the caregivers’ needs for nurture, reassurance, support and respite. By accepting respite or other types of care from an in-home care agency such as Continuum, women can better concentrate on also being a daughter, a mother, and a spouse.
