While caregiving can be rewarding, it is also physically and emotionally draining. Therefore, caregivers often seek support to maintain their own health and help manage life while caring for loved ones. Respite from caregiving responsibilities helps to reduce stress and refresh energy levels.
When planning for time off from caregiving duties, make sure to keep loved ones in the loop. It’s important to be honest and open about their length-of-stay as well as the benefits to caregivers, who return refreshed and relaxed. Put them at ease by communicating the details about the respite emphasizing the benefits of the professional and compassionate care, individualized support and social interaction.
