Respite Care from Comfort Keepers in Prescott, AZ
Family caregivers can attend to other responsibilities with assistance from in-home respite care services
If you are the primary caregiver for a senior loved one, finding enough time in the day to provide care and attend to personal matters can seem impossible. Respite care can help ensure your loved one is consistently cared for, even when you are unavailable.
Often, caring for a loved one is easy in the beginning simply because they may not really need that much help. When age or chronic conditions begin to take their toll, seniors may need help with a few things here and there like going to the grocery store, cleaning or cooking. Other than needing this bit of help, your loved one may have been able to live independently and without much assistance.
Ageing impacts each person differently but no one is left unaffected. The time and amount of care a senior requires may increase as they age. As a primary caregiver, if you feel overwhelmed or unable to provide care, it may be time to start considering respite care.
Many primary caregivers do not ask for help when they need it because they perceive it as selfish. This is particularly the case if their loved one is in a lot of pain or is experiencing extensive challenges in terms of their physical or mental health. However, it is important to know that you must first care for yourself before being able to adequately care for a loved one.
Respite care is available for however many hours or days you need. This will all depend on the particularities of both your responsibilities and your loved one's needs.
Our caregivers are available to jump in whenever you need them to.
Like we have already said, many primary caregivers crash under the weight of their responsibilities, but that is not the only reason to opt for professional care. Our Comfort Keepers caregivers can take care of your loved one for a while so you can get some much-needed rest or simply take a vacation. You deserve it for working so hard.
