Respite Care and How It Can Help You
Respite care is a type of temporary care that shifts primary caregiving responsibilities to another person, usually a professional caregiver, family member, or friend, to provide primary caregivers a break from their duties.
Some family caregivers choose to have someone take up their caregiving tasks for a few hours a week or a few hours a day while away from their loved ones. Temporary care can also be used for extended periods to allow a long leave or vacation.
What to Expect When Caring for an Elderly Relative
Caring for an aging family or friend may be rewarding as well as challenging. To ensure that people continue to enjoy their roles as family caregivers, they must remember to take appropriate breaks and practice self-care regularly.
It's critical to recognize that being a primary caregiver can bring up feelings of loss, anxiety, and physical exhaustion. Caregivers jeopardize their health and well-being if they don't care for their own needs or take a much-needed break. For many families, home care is a viable alternative.
Family caregivers can reclaim the joy they once felt while caring for a loved one with respite care. We help families strike the right balance between caring for a family member and taking care of themselves. Our caring caregivers form strong bonds with families and ensure that everyone is on the same page.
