The care you deserve:
The importance of respite care cannot be overlooked! If you currently care for a loved one, you need to have a break from time to time. If you don’t, you’re only risking burning out.
When this happens, it’s not good for anyone – you or the person you are caring for!
Residential respite care services ensure that your loved one gets the care and assistance they require while you focus on taking a break and refreshing.
Whether this means going for a little break or you have other commitments you need to attend to, private respite care can give you peace of mind that your loved one is in safe hands.
What is respite care?
This form of care offers interim relief for the main caregiver, enabling you to take a break from the demands of caregiving for a disabled, ageing, or sick family member. Everyone needs to have a break at some point.
Whether it is for an extended holiday or a few hours per week, respite care can help to lower the burden of caregiving, ensuring you have more balance in your life, your energy is restored, and your stress is relieved. It can also stop you from becoming isolated, exhausted, and burned out.
When is respite care needed?
There is not a fixed time for when respite care is needed or should be sought after. You can use respite care services as often as required. We would advise that you do not wait until you are too overwhelmed or stressed, though.
As soon as you start to notice signs that you need a break, seeking respite care is advised.
A lot of carers like to have respite care organised on a periodic basis so that they know that they will routinely get a break so that they can recharge their batteries.
Of course, there can be incidents whereby you require last-minute respite care, for example, if you are sick or you have a family emergency to attend to. You will be pleased to know that we are more than happy to accommodate such situations, so please do not hesitate to pick up the phone.
