When Are Respite Services Needed?

Simply speaking, respite care services are available for your loved one in any circumstance in which regular caregivers are unavailable. These services also allow caregivers, especially family caregivers, to take a well-deserved break from their duties as well as provide more  specialized medical or therapeutic care on a temporary basis. Here are some great examples from respite care service providers in Sussex County, New Jersey:

  • Recovery from medical procedures. If your elderly loved one has to undergo a medical or surgical procedure that requires post-operative care, a respite staycan deliver the additional care and rehabilitation services required. With medically trained and experienced caregivers available to support your loved one, you will have peace of mind.
  • Travel and holidays. Being a caregiver shouldn’t prevent you from travelling for business or enjoying a holiday. Respite caregivers can provide the services and support your loved one needs while you attend to other important commitments.
  • Moving home. Moving into a new home is a busy and stressful experience that often leaves little time for other commitments. With respite services, you can rest assured knowing that your loved one’s care and companionship needs will be met while you make this transition. This will make the move far less stressful for both you and your loved one.
  • Making the transition to assisted living. If you are interested in trying out senior living but do not want to make the full commitment until you are sure that it will work for you, then respite care is the answer. With no long term obligations, you and your loved one can explore the community, find out more about our services and meet the neighbors, commitment-free.
