Respite Care Can Give Caregivers A Much Needed Break

Being a caregiver for a senior family member who is starting to lose their independence can be an emotionally and physically draining act of love. The caregiver shoulders the burden of keeping their loved one safe, which can be especially challenging if the loved one is suffering from dementia, Alzheimer's or some other kind of memory disorder.

Caregiving for a senior family member can be a 24/7 job and as a result, the caregiver many times forgets to care for themselves and their health can deteriorate faster than the health of the person they are caring for. Caregivers need regular breaks. They need time to be alone and rejuvenate, to socialize with friends or maybe time to attend an out of town family event. However, taking a break is not as easy as it may sound. Who will competently care for their loved one in their absence?

Respite care may provide the answer. Respite care can provide a break for caregivers that lasts anywhere in length from a few hours to multiple days. Respite care can be provided in the home, in an adult day center or in an assisted living community.

Respite care can be the support system that allows the caregiver to care for themselves as well as their loved one which can lead to a healthier outcome for both of them.
