Some families can provide regular care for their senior loved ones by designating a primary caregiver within the family. It is often beneficial to have a family member serve as the caregiver for an elderly loved one because of the familial relationship and the extensive knowledge the family caregiver has of their loved one’s needs. However, family caregivers offer long, informal hours caring for their loved one and this can result in a lack of sleep, stress, and health issues.

Family caregivers commonly focus all their energy on their loved one’s health, but this often results in depression, physical health problems, and stress. Family caregivers find it difficult to be a caregiver on top of their duties as an employee and parent, so they tend to neglect their own physical and mental health. It is important to utilize respite care services so the family caregiver can have a break occasionally.
Short-Term and Long-Term Care
Family caregivers need time off to care for their own health, spend time with family and friends, and rest. However, family caregivers often feel guilty for taking time off knowing that their loved one is without care. With respite care services, our caregiver will provide care while treating your loved one with compassion and respect.
