In Home Respite Care & Caregiver Relief
It takes a lot of time and energy to care for someone you love, but sometimes you might need to take a temporary break.
Nurse Next Door does support respite care, and our Caregiver Respite Care Programs offer you temporary relief, so you can have a chance to recharge when you need to, and enjoy more fulfilling and meaningful time with your loved ones.
What is Respite Care?
We understand that taking care of an ageing, ill family member, or a person living with a disability, can be incredibly rewarding. But at the same time it can also become an emotionally draining and exhausting experience.
As a family caregiver, your everyday activities are always in high demand. 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 needs and personal life too at the same time, so it’s no wonder that 38% of family caregivers rate their routine as emotionally stressful.
Nurse Next Door’s Caregiver Respite Care is here to give you, your family members and other caregivers small breaks, with temporary quality care. Whether it’s a day or a few weeks, you can find Respite Care Services at Nurse Next Door to meet your loved one’s individual needs.
Catch Your Breath with Experienced In Home Respite Care
Our services include respite options, and emergency respite care to provide you with a much needed break right when you need it most.
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 caregiving tasks, 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 tailored-made to each individual and family situation to ensure you get the necessary relief and support you need at exactly the right time.
Respite Care Providers You Can Trust
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.
