When adults reach old age, the standard practice is to have family members take care of them. But it’s often impossible for family members to provide their elderly loved one with thorough care in addition to their job, immediate family, and personal activities.
With our respite care services, Assisting Hands Home Care can help seniors and their family caregivers in Estero, FL, and the surrounding areas. Whether the family caregiver wants to take a long break from caregiving or simply wants periodic help, we can care for your loved one and maintain a balanced schedule.
The Need for Respite Care in Estero, FL
Many people who seek help from respite care services feel guilty about their inability to provide effective care on their own. This is an understandable feeling, but there simply isn’t enough time for one person to handle such care on top of their other responsibilities.
If a family caregiver already has their own job, their own kids, and other responsibilities, then they already have limited time. Adding on the responsibility as an informal caregiver can lead to high stress and health issues. Knowing this, it’s important to find a balance, which is further supported by the following statistics:
- Out of the 65 million-plus Americans who are an informal caregiver, about 67 percent of them are women.
- Nearly 25 percent of family caregivers in the U.S. have poor health.
- Family caregivers can easily lack sleep, which can result in numerous health issues and even depression.
