Vacation Season

Posted on June 21, 2017 at 10:40 AM
Everyone needs a vacation now and then to break away from the daily grind and unwind. But as a caregiver, you may wonder how it is possible to get away when someone else relies on you for regular support and assistance. Many family caregivers put their loved ones needs before their own and feel guilty about the thought of taking some time to themselves. Respite is exactly what family caregivers need to recharge their lives and prevent burnout. Making the proper arrangements early on to ensure your loved receives excellent care while you're away will help to alleviate some of these difficult feelings. If you do not have a friend or relative who is able or willing to take over all caregiving duties while you're away, consider that there are other ways to obtain respite care. Two of the most common options, in-home care are explored below. A professional caregiver hired through a home care company is able to provide customized care services to meet a seniors unique needs. An aide can visit for a few hours each day or live in your loved ones home full-time while you are away. Home care is often the best solution for older individuals who are most comfortable in their familiar home environment. Gentle Hearts allow clients to interview individual caregivers before they begin, and encourages families to take advantage of this opportunity. Interview several aides and choose the ones you feel would be a good fit with your loved one. You're not just hiring the company, you're hiring the person.(Aging care)
