Providing care for your loved one can be both rewarding and demanding, especially if you have other obligations. If you are providing aid to your family, then it may help to know you are not alone. Approximately 70% 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 one, getting respite is important so that they can care for themselves too. 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 help in order to take care of themselves and to attend to other things in their life.
Being able to have a few hours to yourself can go a long way in helping you mentally and physically recharge.
Respite care is a short-term relief for individuals taking care of their loved ones in their home. If the family is needing an extended break or required to be away for a period of time, respite care is available. Our caregivers can provide 24 hr care if needed.
