About Sherri Sparks, Owner and Founder of Elderly Care Concierge
For Sherri Sparks, the stories she heard about for years suddenly hit home. When working full-time, she worried about how she could be certain her parents received high-quality support that allowed them to continue to live at home.
“As the adult children, we live dispersed throughout the country. We needed a resource we could trust to be there on demand to address our mother’s needs, be it refilling prescriptions, driving her to the grocery store, or getting her to her doctor appointments. It is also important that the family has two-way communications with a professional who can identify and solve any issues that may arise.”
Sherri’s mission became a passion when she made the professional decision to change careers and start a business focused on serving the needs of the elderly who were still living at home but needed support for tasks they could not address. Elderly Care Concierge, based in Dallas, is “your loved one’s assistant” Sparks says. The emphasis is on personalized care as the plan for the concierge service is developed and executed to meet the unique needs of each family.
Sparks says the Elderly Care Concierge upholds the dignity of the parent by allowing them to remain in their own homes as long as possible. However, it also provides ongoing monitoring in the event a discussion is necessary to evaluate more involved care options, including assisted living.
“The beauty of this service is it frees the parent(s) and adult children to spend their time together enjoying rewarding and memorable activities; while assigning a trusted third-party to address the support needs that would normally take up time for more special moments,” Sparks says. “I’d rather spend my time with my mother at a museum or dinner than addressing home repairs.”
Don’t Forget to Take Care of Yourself
Caregiver burnout is a state of physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion that can occur when caregivers experience prolonged and intense stress while providing care for a loved one. Caregiving responsibilities, especially for individuals with chronic illnesses or disabilities, can be demanding and overwhelming, leading to burnout if adequate self-care is not practiced. Caregiver burnout can manifest in various ways, including feelings of exhaustion, irritability, withdrawal from social activities, and a decreased ability to cope with daily challenges. Here’s what you can do to prevent or address caregiver burnout:
Taking care of yourself is essential. Make time for activities you enjoy, get enough sleep, eat a balanced diet, and engage in regular physical activity. Self-care is not selfish; it’s necessary for your well-being. Getting help from an organization such at Elderly Care Concierge can provide much needed support and respite.
Set Realistic Expectations
Accept that you can’t do everything perfectly. Set realistic goals and know your limits. Don’t hesitate to ask for help from other family members, friends, or professional caregivers.
Reach out to support groups for caregivers. Connecting with others who are going through similar experiences can provide emotional relief and a sense of belonging.
Learn Stress Management Techniques:
Practice stress-reduction techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, yoga, or mindfulness. These techniques can help you manage your emotions and reduce stress.
