Respite Care provides caregivers a temporary break, or time of relief, from their care giving duties. It is ideal for family caregivers in need of a break for vacation or other travel or for loved ones needing assistance in recovering from a health circumstance or life transition.
Respite Care also serves to provide a break from the constant physical and emotional stress of caring for a person with 24/7 needs. Caregivers often develop stress-related illnesses such as heart disease, hypertension, or ulcers. An occasional break allows an exhausted caregiver to regroup, both physically and emotionally, and to find the strength to carry on.
If you are traveling and need the peace of mind of knowing your loved one is in good hands, give us a call. We can accommodate special diets, plan for a private room, ensure stimulating activities and recreation, share photos of your loved at your request.
Other ideal uses for a respite stay are during life transitions such as moving between houses or when your loved one is transitioning from their private home setting to an assisted living or a new site of care and needs skilled nursing supports, social interaction, nourishment and other services in a safe and comfortable environment for a short period.
