People don’t always plan on becoming a caregiver to a loved one. Sometimes it’s a parent, sometimes a partner, sometimes even a child who ends up requiring a level of care that be overwhelming to even the most organized and efficient person. Regardless of the other responsibilities you have, being a family caregiver can consume all your energy – both physical and mental – as the job very demanding.
Respite care refers to situations where a caregiver is required to fill in for your loved one's normal caregiver, whether that caregiver is a family member or hired professional. Mavencare will send a caregiver for the time you decide and take care of your loved one while you take a break. Whether it is a few hours or days, our personalized care plans will ensure you are covered. Respite care services are available in your loved one's home in Toronto, retirement home or communities.
The relationships we have in our lives sustain us. We need them to survive, especially during the times when we think we can’t possibly maintain them because of other overwhelming responsibilities such as caregiving. Respite care can provide a much needed break from daily caregiving duties, which is very beneficial for family caregivers. Providing long term care can be very stressful, and has been associated with increased risk for mental and physical health concerns. Taking a break from caregiving lets people focus on their relationships.
One of the biggest problems family caregivers face is they try to do too much with little to no support leading them to sickness themselves. At this stage, they face isolation as they have often let their other relationships fall to the wayside during the task of caring for the person they love. Meeting friends and having a nice chat be a breath of fresh air.
