What is Respite Care?
You cannot take care of a loved one if you are not taking care of yourself.
Respite care programs allow primary caregivers to temporarily transfer their caregiving responsibilities to another person, so that they may receive some well-earned relief.
Respite care for seniors can take many forms - some family caregivers choose to have a respite care worker take over responsibilities for a few hours every week or a few hours every day. Respite care programs can also last for longer periods so that primary caregivers can take an extended break or vacation.
What You Need to Know When Caring for a Senior Loved One
Providing care for a senior loved one can be a great joy, but it can also be a physically and emotionally overwhelming experience. Family caregivers need to remember that they deserve to take breaks and practice self-care so that they can continue to find comfort and satisfaction in their role.
It’s important to recognize that the role of a family caregiver can come with feelings of loss, stress, and physical strain. Respite care provides a beneficial solution for both the caregiver and the loved one receiving care.
