 Respite Care Services 

If you’re acting as a primary caregiver, then you know how difficult it can be to manage the day to day needs of someone else. It’s exhausting physically, mentally, and emotionally. You feel obligated to be a good caregiver, and it’s hard to reconcile that with how draining the experience can be. This often leads to feelings of guilt or resentment, alongside he burnout experienced by many caregivers.

These are perfectly normal feelings, and it’s important to acknowledge them. It’s also important to recognize that you can share the burden. Respite care consists of a care companion who visits your home to provide care and support for your elderly relative. That gives you a chance to leave the house to recuperate and relax. Too often, caregivers find it hard to make time for themselves, but obtaining this respite from caregiving is important for your mental health.

Respite care can use the in-person model, in-facility model, or both. The goal is to find what makes you and your loved one most comfortable. This can vary based on age, diagnosis, prior health industry, whether you need short-term or long-term care, and more. Remember, no matter what your home situation is like, an experienced staff from a respite care agency can work under a wide variety of conditions.
