Should You Quit Your Job to Care for Your Loved One?

Think about all the details before you make your decision.  Quitting your job may or may not be what is best for you and your situation, but have you thought about every aspect?

What will the financial impact be from taking time off from your job?  The financial impact could be short-term or long-term?  How easy will it be for you to get back into your career?  Are you ready to be a full-time Caregiver?  Something to think through.

Is your job a social outlet for you?  If this is the case, you may want to try and keep your job as long as possible.  Many Caregivers leave their job and find out that Caregiving can be a very lonely road, and the job was where they had a chance to connect with others.  It may become more difficult to go places and do things as your loved one’s needs progress.  Something to think through.

What are all the options?  Are you aware of all the resources that are out there that can help you as a Caregiver?  Senior Living, Caregivers in the home, help from friends and family, VA Benefits, Medicaid, Medicare.  Have a discussion with everyone that lives in the home and everyone that could be a potential Caregiver (SEE 3 TYPES OF CAREGIVERS BLOG)You may have more assistance than you realize.
