Taking care of the caregiver
Taking care of an elderly loved one offers many rewards, but can also take a toll on your personal life.
Respite care offers family caregivers temporary relief from caring for individuals with various needs.
An essential part of an overall home care support strategy, respite care is offered in the home or in a
variety of out-of-home settings for any length of time. Caring Crossroads Home Care provides respite
care that helps reduce family stress by helping preserve the family unit, support family stability and
prevent lengthy and costly out-of-home care.
What is Respite Care?
Respite care is temporary relief care designed for families of children or adults with special needs. Respite care can range from a few hours of care provided on a one-time basis to overnight or extended care sessions. Respite care can be utilized on a regular or irregular basis and can be provided by our professionals. Providers care for children or adults with special needs while families take a class, go to a movie, go on a vacation, or enjoy any activity.
Respite care is designed to help families. Caretakers of children or adults with special needs often face serious problems and stress as a result of balancing the needs of their child or adult with special needs with the needs of other family members. These breaks, that respite care provides, allow families time to tend to the needs of their children, spouses, and themselves.
A TEMPORARY CARE SOLUTION FOR ADULTS
For the 65 million Americans caring for an aging or disabled loved one, respite care can serve a number of valuable functions. Respite is often used when:
The family caregiver needs to travel
The family caregiver needs a break
A family care giving recipient needs a temporary change of pace, or a break
Because of the high stress associated with caring for a loved one with a memory disorder, respite is frequently sought by the family of people with Alzheimer's or other kinds of dementia. Family caregivers use the opportunity to "recharge their batteries."
