Respite Care

Respite care provides family members breaks from the daily routine of care giving. It can relieve stress, restore energy and promote the necessary balance in one’s life. Whether it’s for a few hours or a long vacation, Interim can provide the support and relief needed.

We will often arrange for a free in-home evaluation to discuss the type and length of respite care needed, and a plan of service will be developed. There are a number of options for additional support.

Respite Care Services: A Gift to Yourself and Your Loved One

Coping with the declining health and quality of life of someone you love brings with it a host of challenges. Whether a senior citizen is recovering from a stroke, suffering from dementia, or just physically unable to perform necessary daily tasks in their home due to advanced age, family members end up shouldering a lot of responsibility for their elderly relative’s safety and well-being.

Often, family members take on a caregiving role, sacrificing time and energy every day to tend to their loved one’s basic needs. It’s all done out of love and compassion, but it can be immensely draining — particularly in cases of dementia, when a loved one can act unpredictable and sometimes not recognize the people closest to them.

Don’t feel guilty if your role as a caregiver has taken its toll on you, and you think you need some time for yourself. In reality, a tired and stressed-out caregiver who’s neglecting his or her own health to look after someone else is really putting everyone in danger. It’s recommended that caregivers take a break, even if it’s just overnight or for a weekend.

Our short-term respite care services benefit both caregivers and their loved ones, by:

  • Allowing caregivers to catch up on sleep and rejuvenate

  • Giving caregivers more time with their children/spouses

  • Giving caregivers more time for recreation

  • Relieving stress associated with caring for a family member

  • Providing additional companionship for seniors to keep them engaged

Despite what you might think, seeking temporary respite from your responsibilities as a caregiver is not selfish. It’s a way to keep yourself healthy and happy. A positive, well-rested you is the best gift you can give your loved one!
