While some family caregivers are able to provide their senior relatives with the care they need in their own home, others can quickly become burnt out if the senior’s needs are constant. They need a break to rest, work full-time jobs, or even go to class if they are in school. Family caregivers may also be suffering from stress, health issues, and lack of sleep if they are committed to providing long hours of care for their senior relatives.
While it’s common for family caregivers to focus on the health of their loved one, they often forget about their own in the process; long hours and lack of sleep can make them vulnerable to stress, depression, and other physical health issues. Many family caregivers have reported that it’s difficult to juggle full-time jobs, caring for children, and errands, in addition to their caregiving responsibilities. This is why a respite care provider is needed to give the family caregiver a break to catch up with their tasks.

- Women account for two-thirds of all caregivers

Professional Respite Care
When you are ready, one of our professionals will conduct an in-home consultation to allow you to meet the respite caregiver and for them to meet the individual receiving care. The goal is to understand the home care needs of the loved one and provide the care needed so we can take over when the family caregiver needs to rest. We will also develop a detailed scheduled in which our caregiver will arrive to take over.
Our respite care services offer the following benefits for family caregivers:
- Time off to plan vacations with their families
- Lower levels of stress, heath issues, and depression
