Caring for a loved one is a rewarding experience, but sometimes it becomes necessary to take a short break, and this is where our respite care at home service comes in.
We find there are often a number of reasons why someone will choose our respite care service. As a carer, you may need to take a little time out to rest, refresh your energy, and look after yourself. Sometimes the carer is simply unwell themselves and needs to recuperate or stay away to protect their loved one.
In some circumstances, the time away afforded by respite care helps the carers to understand and learn more about changes that their loved one or client might be going through. This is especially true when dementia is diagnosed because it can have a profound effect on behaviour and personality. Occasionally it also allows carers and loved ones to see how the experience suits them before committing to a permanent rest home.
Whatever your reasons for looking into respite care at home, we’d be happy to listen to your thoughts and offer some guidance.
