Providing care for your loved one can be both rewarding and demanding and most especially so if there are already other obligations in place. If you are providing aid to your family, then it may help to know you are not alone. Approximately 70 percent of care is given by family members. About six in ten caregivers are taking care of their own parent.
Caregivers have a great deal of responsibility so it is important that they take time for themselves. Regardless of how much they care for their loved ones, getting respite is important so that they can care better for their loved one. Global Health’s respite care, or “short break care”, is there for those who need aid. Our professional in-home care specialists aid those in need of temporary aid in order to take care of themselves or other things in their life.
Being able to have a few hours to yourself can go a long way.
Respite care is a short-term, impermanent aid for individuals taking care of people in their home. Caregivers with Global Health Care go to the home in order to give the family a break.
If the family is needing an extended break, respite care is available for this as well. Our caregivers can visit during the day, live-in, or stay overnight.
If there is already a caregiver in place that needs a break, then Global Health can help. Our reliable respite care providers can help by giving consistent aid by filling-in or replacing the caregiver if needed.
We are able to create a schedule that provides regular relief for primary caregivers which will lessen their burden. Respite services include:
- Outings and community experiences
- Meal preparation
- Hygiene care
- Light housekeeping
- Getting you to/from appointment
