Providing loved ones with elder home care can be a rewarding and bonding experience within a family, yet in even the best situations, the responsibility and ongoing routine can be stressful and tiring—especially when balanced with a job or caring for children. When family caregivers are emotionally drained, they are likely less effective at playing this critical role. Comfort Keepers of Jacksonville, FL can provide respite care or temporary relief to those who care for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home.
How Comfort Keepers Respite Care Can Help
This type of elder home care benefits both the caregiver and care receiver by offering breaks that enable the caregiver to be revitalized or attend to other duties. Frustration and stress is evaded, and the loved one receiving care feels better knowing they are not a burden. Professional in home care allows caregivers to take the time they need for themselves or other responsibilities with the peace of mind that their loved one is in good hands.
Comfort Keepers respite services can be scheduled for as little as a few hours a week. Additionally, around-the-clock elder home care can be arranged so you can take a longer break to attend a wedding out of town, take a child to college, or go on a much-needed vacation. Respite care is an ideal way to introduce a new caregiver to your family in preparation for a time when 24 hour care may be needed. With a customized plan, you may begin with this type of care for a few hours each week. Time can be increased as needed with everyone in the family already comfortable with your loved one’s professional in-home caregiver.
The benefits of respite care should not be underestimated. It is a common misconception that family care is free, while professional care comes at a cost. However, the benefits to harmonious family relationships, especially when there is limited time remaining with a senior loved one, are truly priceless. Costs of not having respite services can include more than added stress. Detrimental effects on the health of both caregiver and the senior in their care are possible when burnout occurs. Caregivers may also spend more money on convenience services for their own family because they are worn out by their caregiving duties
