What is Live-in Respite Care?
Who may benefit from Live-in Respite Care?
Many people provide daily assistance to family members or friends, becoming caregivers 24/7.
Enabling a loved one to stay in the comfort of their own home is a truly generous, caring, rewarding mission. It is also very challenging. It can become difficult emotionally, physically, mentally and may lead to burnout.
Even though they tend to ignore their own needs or fatigue, those wonderful caregivers need a break from time to time.
It may be to get away due to a family obligation or personal business. It may be due to the stresses of daily life, a medical issue or an emergency. It may simply be to enjoy well-deserved holidays and different activities.
Live-in Respite Care allows Primary Caregivers a well-deserved break
It enables them to recharge and focus on themselves, to rest and rejuvenate. It is also about feeling that they are not alone and that they can get help too.
Temporary assistance to independent people
Live-in respite care may also concern any independent person who would not usually require assistance but may suddenly need help due to unforeseen circumstances, an illness, an injury or after an operation.
Live-in assistance can thus be provided to anyone so they can rest and relax in their usual environment, knowing that an experienced and empathetic carer will not only help with everyday living activities and personal care but also with safety and security concerns, mobility issues, organising a new routine if necessary or longer live-in private care.
Respite care may be a good opportunity to see how permanent, full time live-in care could work for you should your care needs evolve.
Palliative Care & Emergency Care
You may need extra help in case of an emergency or while giving palliative care.
Our respite carers have the training and compassion needed for palliative care and emergency care.
