What Is Respite Care?
Respite care is a type of temporary care that shifts primary caregiving responsibilities to someone else, usually a professional caregiver, family member, or friend, to provide primary caregivers a break from their duties.
While away from their loved ones, some family carers choose respite care, which entails having someone take over caring duties for a few hours a week or a few hours a day. Temporary care can also be used for more extended periods to take a long vacation or absence.
What to Know If You're Caring for an Elderly Loved One
It can be both rewarding and stressful to care for an aging relative or friend. People must remember to take proper pauses and exercise self-care to continue enjoying their work as family caregivers.
It's critical to understand that being a primary caregiver can bring on 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 break. For many families, home care is a good alternative.
Family caregivers can reclaim the joy they previously felt caring for a loved one with short-term respite. We help families strike the right balance between caring for a loved one and taking care of themselves. Our caring caregivers form strong bonds with families and make sure that everyone is on the same page.
