Respite Care – Help for the Caregiver

Female home caregiver reading book to senior woman in bedCaring for a disabled, memory impaired or elderly family member can mean being on call nearly all the time. Especially for live-in caregivers, it means staying on schedule and remembering a thousand details about what needs to be done, like planning, preparing and serving meals, providing medication reminders, doing laundry or running errands.

Caregivers who are constantly on duty can become exhausted if they don’t get enough rest and personal time to fulfill their own needs. That’s why respite care is so important.

Having a trusted respite caregiver there when you need them can be a true lifeline.

Respite Care Services Help Caregivers

Caregiver fatigue can happen to anyone who provides care on a daily basis to an elderly or disabled family member. It’s not something that should be ignored. The caregiver’s own health and well-being are vital, not just for themselves, but for them to be at their best when providing care for the loved one who depends on them.

Avoid caregiver fatigue with respite care

No matter how dedicated they may be, it’s important for every primary caregiver to take a break from time to time. Whether it’s a two-hour hairdresser appointment, an evening out with friends or even a weekend trip, that time away is vital to making sure the primary caregiver gets the rest and renewal they need to be at their best. Respite care by a trained and experienced home caregiver is the easy and affordable way to get that important rest break or to be able to take care of other priorities.

Respite Care Helps Patients

Seniors, memory care patients and others living with disability, whether living at home or in a care facility, depend on their primary caregivers for their day to day needs. They depend on that personal care that no one else gives them, and may even depend on  the caregiver for their most vital needs, like food and medicine. If the primary caregiver gets sick or is unable to work, that can be a dangerous situation for the patient.

With respite care, the patient is able to stay comfortably at home, without interruption to their normal routine. A good respite care provider can provide seamless and worry-free coverage that helps take care of the individual needs of both the patient and the caregiver.

Whether for an hour or a week, your Acti-Kare respite caregiver provides the reassurance you need that your loved one is in good hands

Live-in Respite Care

For a weekend or a week away, live-in respite caregivers may come and stay, providing full and uninterrupted care, while you rest and refresh. The respite caregiver will be available 24 hours to care for your loved one at home. Many caregivers return over and over, becoming like family members, part of the regular routine, a welcome and needed backup to the regular caregiver. This team approach provides a strong safety net, and an easy transition for overnight and longer stays.

Acti-Kare provides around the clock care to help me care for my wife Lois. Lois has dementia and I was able to watch out for her up until a couple months ago when I had some health issue of my own and ended up the local hospital. A nurse there gave me some information on Acti-Kare and TJ came out and talked with me. I felt really comfortable with him. Acti-Kare caregivers are patient with Lois and help us with house cleaning and meals. Yes I would recommend Acti-Kare. They have all been good to us.

All I can say is thank you so much! We had recently lost my father when we called on TJ and the Acti-Kare team. Mom moved in with me but was in poor health as well and needed someone to help care for her when I worked. TJ paired us with an absolute angel (Angie). She took care of my mother like she was her own. She quickly became part of the family! My mother would not have been able to remain at home with out the amazing help of Acti-Kare. It's truly been a blessing. -Barb C.
