Respite Caregivers Step in when You Need Relief
Caring for a loved one may seem instinctive for most. You may spend your whole life with your spouse and naturally you may think you will age in place together and care for one another. However, as the aging process sets in, suddenly caring for one another becomes much more difficult than you originally thought. Or perhaps you find yourself as an adult child of an aging parent, not only having to manage your own family, but now you are looking after your parent as well.
Regardless, of the scenario, it can be complicated trying to be a caregiver to a loved one while also trying to care for your own family responsibilities. It is not that you don’t want to do it, or even that you are not enjoying it, but even the best of us will start to ware down from time to time. Stress levels may rise, energy levels may decrease, and even your health can start to diminish while caring for a loved one.
Our respite care services enable individuals to comfortably remain in their own environments, while providing family caregivers with a much-needed interval of rest or relief. A period of respite may be a few hours to a few days in length. These short-term breaks can help to relieve that mounting stress, restore energy, and promote balance in your life. It also enables you to share the responsibility for caregiving while getting the needed support for yourself and your loved ones. A plan of care can be developed specifically on what responsibilities you would like relief from temporarily or permanently. We are here to help you be as creative as you like.
