Caregiver Video Series: Tips to safely helping your loved ones

Four videos share tips for caregivers.

The title of ‘caregiver’ isn’t one most people seek out, rather it’s bestowed upon us when a loved one suddenly needs support – regardless of our training, an already busy life, or mere energy to play the part. Caregiving can be especially challenging because the person providing care is often learning how to do so in real time.

Landmark was started to help patients with serious illnesses stay well at home. Because we deliver care in the home, we become a support for our patients’ families and caregivers, too.  We aim to set caregivers up for success in caring for a loved one, while caring for their own mental and emotional health.

In our new video series, Landmark’s Regional VP of Health Services and nurse, Jeanne Leising, offers tips on handling common situations you may encounter with your loved one.

Caregiving has its own unique challenges, but that doesn’t mean you have to go through those challenges alone. If your loved one is eligible for Landmark’s service, we can provide routine and urgent visits at home, assess concerns, assist with care coordination and answer medical questions.
