Respite Care in Yorkville, IL, and the Kendall County area
When an elderly relative is disabled or becomes sick, family members often choose to take care of their loved one themselves. This is admirable of them to do, but it isn’t always easy. Being a caregiver is a demanding responsibility that can cause one to have negative health effects due to stress and lack of sleep. Family caregivers oftentimes put their own health and well-being aside to take care of their elderly relative, and they may feel guilty taking time off to take care of their own personal matters.
Family caregivers need to take breaks for their own well-being and so they can be rested enough to provide better care for their loved ones. With respite care services in Yorkville, Oswego, Montgomery, IL, and the Kendall County area, Assisting Hands Home Care can help family caregivers in such situations.
Short-Term Care for Seniors
We will work with the family caregiver to create a care schedule that gives them time off to address their important personal matters.
Take a look at the following numbers, and you’ll see why it’s so important for family caregivers to take time off:
- In the U.S., 65 million-plus family caregivers provide care to a loved one.
- Women make up two-thirds of the 65 million-plus family caregivers.
- Health concerns, such as depression, affect about one-fourth of family caregivers in the United States.
The aforementioned health concerns stem from the amount of stress and demanding schedules that family caregivers experience. Adding caregiving responsibilities on top of career and family responsibilities can make handling everything nearly impossible.
Respite Care Benefits
We, at Assisting Hands, want to help by giving your family caregivers a break from providing care. With time off, family caregivers can address personal affairs and relax, allowing them to return to caregiving duties mentally refreshed and well rested.
We make sure the care schedule we develop works for everyone involved by working with your family caregiver. While the family caregiver is taking a break, you and your family will be reassured that your loved ones are getting quality care from our professionals.
With our respite care services, family caregivers can experience the following benefits:
- More energy
- Less stress
- Less chance for depression
- Scheduled breaks either on a daily basis or for a couple days at a time
With respite care services from Assisting Hands Home Care, we can provide you with a well-trained, skilled caregiver who will provide exceptional care for your senior loved ones and a much-needed break for family caregivers.
