Working From Home Care-Giving My Mom
Care-giving for loved ones has become quite the norm for many families all over the world. Working from Home is very possible and you can do it too!
It may surprise you, but statistics show the devastating effect Dementia has on the U.S. population today. Researchers estimate that at least 1 in 3 seniors will die with Dementia. It is also thought that more than 9 million Americans live with some form of Dementia today. Alzheimer’s Dementia alone is considered the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S. according to the Dementia Society of America.
Today I will share my personal story of how I am able to work from home care-giving my mom that has dementia. Mom was diagnosed with dementia about 4 years ago, although the family began seeing signs and changes in her as far back as 2009. She gradually progressed as traumatic situations occurred. Since we lost my father in March 2016, the progression has accelerated very quickly. She is no longer able to be left living alone and removing her from the home she and my dad shared for 62 years of marriage is just not an option. So I work at home online and have been able to schedule at least 4 hours a day on a home business that generates residual income and helps me maintain my home and cover expenses. Between myself and my brother we rotate a few weeks on and a few weeks off and are committed to keeping mom at home where all the family memories are.
But there are challenges that come with working from home while care-giving. It’s imperative that a caregiver be able to set aside time that is free from distraction—a difficult thing to do for those taking care of a loved one with dementia, or someone who needs help on an almost constant basis.
5 Tips For Working From Home

2. Create a daily work routine and try to stick to it, which may be difficult when dealing with a person affected with dementia.
