Respite Care- An Essential Senior Services Option For The Primary Familial Caregiver in Clinton Township, MI
Consider including respite care in your loved one's senior services plan for some time to rest and recharge
Comfort Keepers senior services experts understand that caregiving is a rewarding and bonding experience within a family, yet in even the best situations, the responsibility and ongoing routine can be stressful and tiring—especially when balanced with a job or caring for children. When family caretakers are emotionally drained, they are likely less effective at playing this critical role. Sometimes the only cure to restore a healthy balance in life is to take a much-needed break from the draining responsibilities of being a care provider to a family member or loved one. Respite care may be the solution. Caregivers can provide respite services or temporary relief to those who care for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home.
Our in home care providers work with families who are overwhelmed by the tasks of providing care to seniors while also attempting to live their own lives and provide for other family members. We understand that everyone needs time for themselves. When we begin senior services for your loved one, our caregivers will do an overview of your senior family member's routine, medication needs and other areas where assistance can be useful (laundry, meal preparation, etc.) to ensure you and your senior loved one get the most out of the period of respite services you receive from our care agency.
What is Respite Care?
Known in some countries as “short break” care, respite services provide planned short-term breaks for families and other unpaid caregivers who need time outside the home or to simply take a rest. Respite services also help to support and maintain the primary caregiving relationship.
How We Can Help Through Our Senior Services
Respite care services give you time to leave the home for a few hours or even a few days, knowing the one you care for is in good hands. This creates time to:
- take care of the errands you never seem to have time for.
- catch up on your shopping.
- attend a support group meeting.
- visit doctor or dentist for routine care.
- give yourself a much-needed rest.
Respite care services can be scheduled for as little as a few hours a week. Additionally, they can be scheduled around-the-clock so you can take a longer break to attend a wedding out of town, take a child to college, or go on a much-needed vacation.
