At Home Instead Senior Care, with our convenient respite care services, we offer a simple solution to what could be a potentially serious conflict for any primary CAREGiverSM. Even the most competent family CAREGivers need time to decompress and revitalize their own health. After all, providing all the necessary caregiving to an ailing family member is physically and emotionally draining. A recent survey by the Commonwealth Fund reported that 60 percent of all family caregivers experienced fair or poor health including one or more chronic conditions. This is compared to only 33 percent of non-caregivers.
The stress and demand for caregiving can obviously take a toll on the primary CAREGiver in every regard. With Home Instead respite care services, we can temporarily provide an overworked family CAREGiver with a professional and trained CAREGiver. They will come to your residence, assist your loved one with any of their caregiving needs, and allow you some free time to do some of the things you enjoy doing in Caulfeild. Caregiving can be an extremely taxing requirement with overwhelming responsibilities. Fortunately, when you utilize our respite care services, you can relax a bit knowing that your ailing family member is safe and well taken care of.
The best part of our respite program is we are willing to work with your schedule – whatever it is. You can coordinate our respite care services to any flexible or methodical scheduling approach you need for whatever is going on in your life. Have a part-time job in Caulfeild?
