Caring for a loved one can be physically and emotionally draining, especially when your family member needs round-the-clock care. There’s rarely time to sit and recharge, let alone take a vacation. As a result, many people experience caregiver burnout and have trouble maintaining balance in their lives. Help is available in the form of trusted respite care from other seniors through Seniors Helping Seniors® Bucks County.
Respite Care for Different Needs
When it comes to respite care, there is no “one size fits all” service. The service you receive will be tailored to meet the needs of your loved one. We can provide personal care to assist with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), run errands, provide companionship, and more. We have caregivers specially trained to assist seniors with dementia, Alzheimer’s, and memory issues, who can provide round-the-clock care to keep your loved one safe. For stroke patients, we can provide mobility assistance, transportation to medical appointments, and assistance with personal care, errands, and housework. We can keep cancer patients comfortable and provide medication reminders, and we can meet the mental and physical needs of people with disabilities when their families need a break. Whether your loved one needs care for a few hours or overnight, we’ll provide the support you and your family need while you’re away.
When Should a Caregiver Consider Respite Care?
It sometimes feels selfish to family caregivers to ask for a break, but it’s the best possible thing to do for yourself and your senior family member. It’s difficult to provide the best quality care when you feel tired, frustrated, or overwhelmed. If you find your own health or well-being suffering, it’s time for a break. You have your own life to navigate and your personal needs to meet, and sometimes you need a break to manage something in your own life or simply have a little fun.
