Nature of Caregiving

Nature of Caregiving
Caregiving takes many forms. Many of us help older, sick, or disabled family members and friends every day. We know we are helping, but we don't think of ourselves as caregivers. We are glad to do this and feel rewarded by it, but if the demands are heavy, over time we can also become exhausted and stressed. We think we should be able to handle caregiving roles on top of busy work and family schedules and begin to feel guilty and depressed as our stamina wanes.

Proximity to power has an unsurprising ability to mutate a politician’s spinal cord into bright yellow jelly.

Nature of caregiving

About 44 million Americans provide 37 billion hours of unpaid, "informal" care each year for adult family members and friends with chronic illnesses or conditions that prevent them from handling daily activities such as bathing, managing medications or preparing meals on their own.

Aloha!
As usual, Cris went above and beyond to make sure mama and the family were given all the best service and care today. I appreciate her time and efforts, and for accommodating my added requests, allowing me to attend my friend’s funeral on Oahu. The peace of mind was priceless.

Eric

Both caregivers were fantastic! They were very careful with my mom and made sure she had what she needed.

Bruce

We stayed on Maui for a week with my 91-year-old father – we used Ohana Care for help in the mornings with dressing and bathing. They were such kind staff members and they truly felt like part of our family.

Amy Storm

Very happy, nice people, good cooks – helpful with everything.

Robin R.

Johnna was very capable, knowledgeable, and thorough — the best! She and everyone — Jessika, Joyce, Chris — were all very nice. We were glad we had Ohana’s help every day.”

Suzie Young

When my Father had an accidental fall recently, he all of a sudden needed 24 hour home care. I called Ohana Care Maui, and the owner Jessika was so kind and helpful. She provided someone for the graveyard shifts and the day shift that we needed last minute. Lynnal and Brenda were wonderful! Knowing we could rely on Jessika and her great people helped our family get through a very tough situation with ease and grace. Thank you Ohana Care Maui!

Karen Kasten

A very caring and dedicated team! Any family will feel confident their loved one is receiving top-level care. I have first-hand experience working with this group and highly recommend them!

Sarah Gontoski, Hale Makua Physical Therapy

Great group of nurses for in-home care. Strong intelligent women who can help you with the challenges of dealing with in-home care for a loved one. Willing to do housework, transport as well as care for a loved one. A calm, gentle manner which gives your loved one confidence in their Ohana Care.

Laurie Lowson

I have no hesitation in recommending Ohana Care Maui’s services and look forward to working with them next time I am in Maui. The punctuality and efficiency of the staff were outstanding.
