Taking time out and giving family carers a break with Burley's respite care
Caring for a loved one is a rewarding experience, but sometimes it becomes necessary to take a short break, and this is where respite care can be extremely helpful.
People choose to take advantage of our respite care services for a number of reasons. It may be that the carer needs to take a little time out to rest, refresh their energy, and look after themselves. Sometimes they are simply unwell and need space to recuperate.
In some circumstances, the time away afforded by respite care helps carers to have the time they need to understand and learn more about changes that their loved one might be going through, especially if they have been diagnosed with dementia which can have a profound effect on behaviour and personality. Occasionally it allows carers and loved ones to see how the experience suits them before committing to a permanent rest home.
It’s not always the carer who opts for respite care. Sometimes their loved ones choose to have a temporary change of scenery, or a break from their daily routines. Respite care can give them the opportunity to enjoy comfortable surroundings, and meet new people.
In all cases, respite care can help a carer to not feel overwhelmed by their challenges and responsibilities, while giving their loved ones all the support and comfort they need.
Our respite care services are flexible and matched to your needs. Whether you need a few hours, a day or a couple of time a week. we can either spend time with you in the comforts of your own home or accompany you out to the shops or a place you would like to visit.
