What Is Respite Care and Why It Is Important?

Are you taking care of your mom, dad, spouse, or other elderly relatives? Do you ever get tired and just need a break? Do you have a business trip you need to take? Are you due to take your children away for a vacation?

Respite Care

Do any of these scenarios cause you concern? How will I make sure all my responsibilities are taken care of? How will mom keep eating right? Who will remind dad to take his medications? Who will take my spouse to that doctor’s appointment we scheduled?

The simplest solution is respite care from Care at Home! Respite Care is exactly what it sounds like. Care provided to give the primary caregiver a break. It allows you, the caregiver to take a well-deserved break and come back rejuvenated to continue caring for mom, dad, or your spouse.

Care at Home will have someone meet with you, review options for respite care, review mom or dad’s normal routine, and help you determine how we can help. We can provide care a few hours during the day, overnight, so you can sleep, or we can have someone there 24/7 if you need to go away. Respite Care is meant to be short-term, so you can enjoy a vacation, or just get some rest.

The Care at Home staff will work with you to match the right caregiver to help your loved one. They are all dedicated to providing you with peace of mind while you are away. Our caregivers will help your loved one with getting dressed, personal hygiene, medication reminders, bring them to a doctor’s appointment, cook meals, and even light housekeeping. They will care for your loved one as if they were a family member.

As a  family caregiver, you need to make sure to take care of yourself, as well as your loved one. It can be physically and emotionally exhausting to be the primary caregiver. Taking care of yourself and giving yourself a chance to rejuvenate is critically important to be able to continue to give the attention you need to your loved one.

If you need a break or want to take a vacation, please give us a call and see how we can help!
