Being a family caregiver for an elderly loved one can be an enjoyable experience. At the same time, it can be exhausting physically and emotionally, which is something most family caregivers are not aware of when they take on the role. For family caregivers who are also trying to balance a career and raising a family, things can become even more challenging.
You may feel like you are alone in providing this level of care, but in reality, 44 million others are doing the same thing every day. As a family caregiver, your loved one depends on you to provide the best care you can. But, to do this, you must take care of yourself or risk not being able to provide the level of care your loved one deserves. This is where the respite care program offered by Comfort Keepers in Halifax, Nova Scotia comes in.
Our respite care services come with a professional caregiver who can be there to care for your loved one when you need time to take care of yourself, your family, and, most importantly, yourself.
Among the many things you can do with this time off are:
We know how hard taking care of an elderly loved one can be, but we also realize the even the most dedicated caregiver needs a break. Our respite services are available on a part-time basis allowing you to take short breaks when needed. They are also available 24/7, giving you time to take a vacation where you can rest and recharge your batteries. Why run yourself into the ground when a skilled Comfort Keepers® caregiver is only a phone call away?
