Estate & Asset Protection Attorney and Owner, Shannon Pawley, honors caregivers during National Family Caregivers month by providing information about a variety of government and local programs and services that can help caregivers bring greater balance into their lives..
DECATUR, GA, November 17, 2021: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new article on the law firm’s website entitled “Services That Can Help Family Caregivers Maintain Life Balance.” Ms. Pawley provides an excerpt from President Biden’s Proclamation for National Family Caregivers Month as well as sources that offer programs that can provide much needed help to these unsung heroes.
Pawley states, “A majority of caregivers in this country are non-professional family members.” She continues, “Providing care for aging parents or other loved ones who cannot care for themselves is time-consuming and exhausting. Caregivers are notoriously deficient in self-care. However,” she adds, “this is a growing problem that must be addressed. Caregivers and their families must maintain life balance for the good of those they care for. Many programs exist to provide various types of assistance from compensation to adult day program services.”
“Since 1997,” Pawley reminds her readers, “November has been designated as National Family Caregivers Month. This year, due to COVID-19 family caregiving has increased exponentially. President Biden made a proclamation at the beginning of the month addressing his concern and dedication to supporting the overwhelming number of caregivers who have stepped up and sacrificed so much this year and will continue to do so in the years ahead.”
Pawley provides a portion of the President’s Proclamation and the link to the entire message.
She goes on to add that, “Over 400 programs provide financial assistance for elder care. Help comes from federal, state, and local governments, the VA, non-profits, private organizations, and as many as 50 other agencies. However, please be forewarned that because of the large number of sources and different and often conflicting qualification rules, determining one’s eligibility can be challenging.
