Respite In-Home Care
Respite In-Home Care is temporary care to allow family caregivers relief from the full-time care they may have been providing for a loved one. Respite care can provide temporary relief for a primary caregiver, enabling you to take a much-needed break from the demands of caregiving a sick, aging, or disabled family member. Respite care can take place in your own home which can also save family members hundreds of dollars by not having to send their ill or disabled family member to a short-term care facility.
Whether it’s for just a few hours a week or an extended vacation, seeking respite care can help ease the burden of family caregiving and help to relieve stress, restore your energy, and promote balance in your life. It can also prevent you from becoming exhausted, isolated, or even burned out. Respite care can benefit the person you are caring for, too, providing them with variety, stimulation, and a welcome change of routine.
Seeking support and maintaining your own health is key to managing your role as a caregiver, so it’s not selfish to need time to yourself. If you are overwhelmed by the daily grind of caregiving, your patience and compassion will wear thin, you may find it harder to connect with the person you are caring for, and you will probably both feel unfulfilled. After a break to recharge your batteries, though, you will feel more energetic, focused, and reinvigorated about your caregiving role. You may even be able to pick up tips on new ways to tackle common problems you face as a caregiver, helping to make the caregiving journey a more enjoyable and rewarding experience for both you and the loved one in your care.
