Catch Your Breath with Experienced In Home Respite Care
We understand that taking care of an ageing or ill family member can be incredibly rewarding and, at the same time, emotionally draining and exhausting. As a caregiver, you are continually preparing meals, cleaning up, changing sheets, and offering much comfort and good cheer to everyone around you including the family member you are caring for. You manage the challenge of dealing with your own personal life too so it’s no wonder that 38% of family caregivers rate their routine as emotionally stressful.
Our services include respite care to provide you with a much-needed break right when you most need it. Our professionals will ensure your loved one is cared for — at home or in any setting — for a couple of hours, an entire day, overnight, or even longer term. By stepping out of your everyday routine and taking the time to relax, re-energise, and refresh, you’ll enhance your own well-being as well as strengthen your relationship with the person you’re caring for. This can make all the difference in the world.
Custom Designed Respite Care Services
Juggling the overwhelming balance of duties might seem doable to you some days, but going too long without a break to refresh and re-set can lead to burn-out, depression and other health issues. Nurse Next Door knows how important short breaks are in order to help you make it through the long haul ahead of you. This is why our caregiver respite services are tailor-made to each individual and family situation to ensure you get the necessary relief and support you need at exactly the right time.
Before deciding what type of respite care services you and your family might need, our care designer will sit down and speak with you about what might work best for you. Do you need a few hours off twice a week? 24 hours away from the house? Or perhaps a regular weekly night out with your partner or friends?
Once you’ve determined how much time away would be beneficial, we can then work with you to design an aged care respite program that is best for your loved one too. What do they need most at this moment? Companionship and meal preparation? Or maybe some light housekeeping and personal care? We’ll discuss every detail with you and create a plan that meets everyone’s needs.
