You’re the primary caregiver, but there just aren’t enough hours in a day; we can provide an occasional break to allow you the rest that you need and deserve.
Age in Place understands that after an illness, health issue or Alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis, you most likely believe the best care for your loved one is at home in familiar surroundings with less disruption in routines resulting in reduced confusion. Like the majority of devoted family caregivers, you take on the role of providing the necessary care.
As a primary caregiver, the effort begins to take a toll on your own physical and emotional health, family life and career. Families with the best intentions simply “burn out.” Some of the predominate actions and feelings experienced at this time are a neglect of other responsibilities, lack of confidence in your caregiving skills or you might begin to resent the demands placed on your time.
As the day-to-day demands increase, contact Age in Place Home Care and ask about our Respite Care service… we will quickly work with you to understand the specialized needs of you and your loved one.
