An exhausted caregiver is not an effective caregiver. It’s important for caregivers and for those they care for that they remember to take care of themselves in the midst of taking care of others. A caregiver must stay healthy in order to capably assist the senior they care for in doing the same. If you are a primary caregiver in need of a break, or if your loved one’s main caregiver requires a period of rest, Mavencare’s respite care services can help.
A respite caregiver will provide your loved one with expert home care while the primary caregiver takes some time off. Respite care will be every bit as competent and supportive as the regular care your loved one receives, so you need not worry about the quality of care suffering at all.
Respite care services are often required for a couple days per week, but they can also be used for longer periods time should the regular caregiver be ill or injured, occupied by a family emergency, or on vacation.
Respite care services are useful for the caregiver, who will have time to relax and recuperate, as well as for your elderly loved one, since their primary caregiver will return to them well-rested and well-equipped to deliver excellent care.
Caregivers who provide respite services are professionals, and they understand that they are coming into a home where a care routine has been established. They will adhere to this routine, which means that the high level of care your loved one receives will remain consistent.
As with any of our caregiving services, we want your loved one to have a good relationship with their respite caregiver. We’ll match your senior relative with a caregiver based on both their care needs and their personality with the aim of creating a positive home care experience and easing the transition from the primary caregiver to the one providing respite.
Mavencare’s mobile app allows you to stay in contact with your loved one’s respite caregiver and receive updates about their care throughout the day or night.
