Who Takes Care of the Caregiver?

Mom, where are my sneakers?

Honey, is my favorite work shirt clean?  

Can you be a dear and go grocery shopping for your parents this weekend?    

You take care of everyone and it seems like they all depend on you.  Your parents, spouse, and children need your constant help and so it might stand to reason that you will forget to take care of yourself.  You give, give, and give some more but what about your needs?  Who takes care of the caregiver?  In many different ways, we’ve all heard that you need to take care of yourself before you are fully able to take care of others.  For example, we are told to put our own oxygen mask on first before helping other people around us in the event an airplane loses cabin pressure.  In an emergency, you would do it because you have value but do you see value in your everyday living?

Bottom line, people depend on you as the caregiver so you need to take care of yourself.  Secure Planning Strategies can help as we understand that you, the caregiver, have value as you need to be protected.  We will financially advise you on your wealth management options such as having an emergency fund, short-term and long-term care insurance policies and pursuing a financially secure future that will help you reach your goals based on your priorities.

We will assess your ability to protect yourself in the event of life’s challenges and we encourage you to feel empowered so you are comfortable with the idea of taking care of yourself.  You need to take care of yourself so you can be there for others so give us a call at: (248) 827-2580 or e-mail us at: [email protected].
