Like many caregivers, Behrooz sometimes needs to step away from his responsibilities to relax, recuperate and de-stress.
Since his father’s death three years ago, he had become the 24-hour caregiver for his 97-year-old mom, who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease. Because she needs constant supervision, her 69-year-old son rarely had time to replenish and recover from his work as her caretaker.
When the stress and lack of sleep began to cause too much strain for him, Behrooz reached out to the Kathi Koll Foundation for assistance and was gifted $1,500 in respite care. These funds provided a bit of time for him to recover and rest, which was a needed relief to the incessant demands of caregiving.
