Respite care is a situation whereby an alternative caregiver is required to fill in for the regular caregiver who is usually either a professional caregiver or a family member.
If your regular caregiver is not able to perform their usual duties for one reason or another, we will send a professional caregiver to provide respite care for the days or even the few hours your regular caregiver will be away. We offer these services at your loved one’s home, retirement communities and homes. We also tailor our services to cover trips and appointments.
Research indicates that providing long-term care to the elderly or sick can be stressful to the caregiver: this has also been linked to mental and physical health challenges. Hence, the need for respite care, which gives a caregiver a much needed and deserved break. Taking a break provides the caregiver time to tend to their own well being and it also reduces stress. Our caregivers can come in to provide respite care for short periods of times when the caregiver is unavailable.
