Loving Angels Home Care provides relief to those who are caring for family members, who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home. We also provides a positive experience for the person receiving care.
Even though many families take great joy in providing care to their loved ones so that they can remain at home, the physical, emotional and financial consequences for the family caregiver can be overwhelming without some support, such as respite.
Schedules can be personalized to your requirements—from a four hour visit every other day to bringing in a live-in caregiver for a overnight. This provides respite to the regular career/family member, so they can unwind and take some time off.
Caring for another person can be physically and mentally demanding, and much more than purely handling the day-to-day tasks. Especially when caring for long periods at a time, the emotional strain can take its toll. Respite care is there to provide your main caregiver with a break while still ensuring your care needs are met.
Respite care can either be provided through:
Live-in Care – where the caregiver lives in your house, offering support and companionship day and night
Daily Care – if you need some extra support for a just a few hours each day or each week
You might also need to arrange short-term care if you have to attend a family emergency or other commitments. Respite care ensures that the person you are supporting always has someone there to help them if ever you’re not around.
