For many, the challenges of caring for a loved one are part of daily life. Caregiving is a demanding, difficult job and no one is equipped to do it alone. Getting help is essential for your health, and your resilience is critical for your loved one. Seeking support and maintaining one’s own health are key to managing the caregiving years. Using respite care before you become exhausted, isolated, or overwhelmed is ideal, but just anticipating regular relief can become a lifesaver.
Respite care provides short term breaks that relieve stress, restore energy, and promote balance in your life. Working with family members or friends may be difficult, however Our House Home Care Services will help provide you with the many respite care options we provide.
Planning starts with analyzing needs…both yours and your loved one’s. Keep track of your daily activities with your loved one and then make a list of the areas and times when you most need help. Identifying your loved one’s requirements, abilities, and preferences will also help determine the right plan for you.
Our Caregivers can provide respite care for as little as 1 hour to as many as 24 hours per day to provide you with the rest you need.
