Caregiver burnout occurs when a caregiver overexerts themselves. As a family caregiver, you might feel like you have to constantly take care of your loved one, and sometimes, you might forget to take care of yourself. In order to help family caregivers avoid burnout, Trust Home Care, Inc. offers our Respite Care services. With our Respite Care service, we can take care of your loved ones as you take a break or take care of your other responsibilities.
A trained professional stays with your loved one and take over your care giving role, whether for several hours or several days. These brief reprieves from a care giving situation are healthy for the caregiver and also for the care recipient…a change of daily routine for both. Respite care may include the following services in accordance with instructions from the regular caregiver:
- Assistance with toileting
- Assistance with dressing
- Reminder to take medication if necessary
- Reading to client
- Calling for help and assistance in any unusual situation by contacting the regular caregiver, the client’s physician or an appropriate agency.
Admitting that you need a break is not a sign that you no longer care for your loved one. It simply means that you want to be healthy enough so that you can continue taking care of their needs as well.
