Caregiving, though, is a demanding job and no one is equipped to do it alone.
Respite care provides short-term breaks that can relieve stress, restore energy, and promote balance in your life. There are many respite care options available to support you and your loved one. CarePatrol works with assisted living communities in order to provide a respite stay for families.
Why should a family member consider a respite stay?
- Respite Care is used to provide a brief break for a caregiver.
- Seeking support and maintaining your own health are key to managing your role as a caregiver.
- Using respite care before you become exhausted, isolated, or overwhelmed is ideal.
- Respite care will provide assistance with activities of daily living including bathing, dressing, personal hygiene, and social interaction.
- Respite care allows you to share the responsibilities for caregiving and allows you to get support for yourself.
- Identifying your loved one's requirements, abilities, and preferences will also help you find the right match.
