Respite Care: Relief for the family

Respite Care in Petoskey, MI. Many family members in America provide daily care for their elderly parent or grandparent so that they can continue to stay at home. This can become very physically and emotionally demanding. Most are also busy with their own family activities, job, and responsibilities.

Respite care is planned short-term breaks for family members and other unpaid caregivers caring for a loved one. In home senior respite care provides relief for a few hours a day or a few days a week. This is important so they can continue to provide care for their loved one, and also supports the senior’s ability to stay home in their own environment as long as possible. If 24 hour care is needed, caregivers are often brought in to cover the overnight shift so the main caregiver can rest.

“Because of the high stress associated with caring for a loved one with a memory disorder, respite is frequently sought by the family of people with Alzheimer's or other kinds of dementia. Family caregivers use the opportunity to recharge their batteries."

Caregivers of 1Senior Home Care can provide companionship, personal care, homemaking services and more. They can relieve the family from 2 to 24 hours/day, a week, a weekend, overnight or on an as needed basis.
