Respite Care

Family caregivers provide much-needed support to their loved ones, but it can be an emotional rollercoaster. In addition, the physical demand of caring for an aging loved one can be quite taxing. Like all of us, family caregivers need breaks from time to time to avoid emotional and physical burnout. Respite care allows the primary caregiver to hand off care responsibilities of a loved one for an afternoon, a day or even a few weeks.

What Is Respite Care And Why Is It Important?

While the caregiving journey can take a toll, there are ways to improve overall well-being for caregivers, one of which is the use of respite care. Respite care is simply a short break for a caregiver, and the care can still occur at home. When used over time, respite has been found to help caregivers continue to care for their loved one at home, preventing or delaying the need for facility care. Additionally, having a break and enjoying the benefits of respite care positively impact a caregiver’s physical and emotionally well-being. As the saying goes, you can't pour from an empty cup.

Let a Home Instead Care Professional give you the break you need to recharge!
