Considering The Need For Respite Care
We know that as fulfilling as caring for others may be, family members can often forget to take care of themselves. Missed social activities, frequent illness, and/or increase in fatigue can all be signs of caregiver burnout. It could be time for a short break to refocus and re-prioritize your personal responsibilities. Read on to determine if our respite care services are right for you and your family.
What is Respite Care?
Respite Care is a way to provide short term relief for unpaid caregivers. CARE Inc. can provide your loved one with quality care designed to fit your needs for a specified time period. Whether you need time for a vacation, time to recover from surgery, or time to focus on work, respite care services give you time to take care of yourself for a change.
Is Respite Care Right for You?
Asking for help can be difficult, and the difficulty can be compounded when choosing a substitute care provider for your loved one. Determine if respite care is necessary by asking yourself the following:
Is there someone you trust to take care of your loved one in case of an emergency?
Have you missed a personal doctor’s visit or neglected to fulfill your own health-related needs?
Do you find yourself making excuses to miss previously important social events?
If these questions were tough to answer, it may be time to consider a break!
