It’s necessary to take breaks, and our Peterborough respite care professionals recognize that being the only caregiver for a loved one can be a gratifying experience. It may, however, be a stressful and taxing task, particularly when combined with raising children or having a full-time job. However, family caregivers are not alone. Millions of Canadians (mostly Baby Boomers) in Ontario and elsewhere are typically looking after an aging relative on a regular basis.
With so many people depending on them, it is crucial that family members take the time to care for themselves. No matter how much they love the people they are caring for, caretakers need regular breaks to be their best. That is where our care from Comfort Keepers® can help. Our senior caregivers provide professional in-home care for seniors and other adults who require assistance to temporarily relieve caretakers so they can attend to other matters such as the following:
- Run errands
- Spend time shopping
- Meet with a support group
- Make a dentist or doctor appointment
- Enjoy much-deserved alone time, a day off, or vacation
How respite care helps everyone
Respite Care is crucial because it affords families and friends the unique opportunity to leave home for a few hours with the peace of mind that comes with knowing their loved ones are in capable hands. With our care, caretakers can schedule as much or as little time away as they need. Arranging care is easy, whether they need a few hours a week to run errands or around-the-clock care so they can make it to an event out of town.
Family members do not need to let non-stop caregiving take a toll on their physical and emotional health.
