Comfort Keepers of Woodland, CA Offers Quality Respite Care in Dixon, CA
Respite care ensures seniors receive the care they need while family caregivers are away
Caregiving is a noble but demanding task. Over time, some caregivers may find themselves in an overwhelming situation with no time to actually live their own lives. We understand, which is why at Comfort Keepers, we offer respite care to support caregivers and allow them the opportunity to focus on themselves and recuperate.
Respite care is temporary senior care and involves our trained professional caregiver relieving primary caregivers of their duties for a short period of time. This can mean any time period from just a couple of hours a week to a couple of hours each day and full-time care while caregivers are away for days at a time.
The care your loved one will receive as part of our respite care program is just like any other senior care. Our Interactive Caregiving brand of care is split up into two major groups - personal care and companion care. Our services include toileting and incontinence care, grooming, meal preparation, and incidental transportation. Of course, non-medical senior care is not restricted to any one of these and can include assistance with anything your loved one may need or want to do during our time with them.
If you are feeling guilty about taking some time for yourself and using respite care for that keep in mind these two points: care assistance will help you be a better caregiver, and it will help you preserve your relationship with your loved one. In order to be the best caregiver possible, you must be taking care of yourself. This will allow you to be in the best shape possible - both physically and mentally - and able to tackle any challenges caregiving presents.
At the same time, if caregiving for your loved one is taking up all of your time, you may start feeling resentful towards them despite your best intentions. Taking a timeout and focusing on things that make you happy could prevent that, allowing you to take only the best out of your relationship with your loved one.
