Respite Care Provides Family Caregivers a Break
We understand that family members providing care can sometimes feel overwhelmed and exhausted. Helping Hands Homecare offers respite care to give family caregivers a much-needed break while their loved one continues to receive quality care.
Respite care involves having our trained caregivers provide temporary relief by looking after your loved one for a designated period of time – a few hours, a few days or even weeks when needed. This allows you to focus on other responsibilities or simply recharge your own batteries.
The benefits of respite care include:
- Time for yourself – Take a nap, enjoy a hobby, see friends without worry
- Reduced caregiver stress/burnout – Avoid fatigue by scheduling intermittent breaks
- Well-deserved breaks – Plan getaways to relax and rejuvenate
- Expert care continues – Your loved one is well looked after in your absence
Respite care brings peace of mind knowing your family member’s needs are covered. Contact us to learn more about scheduling flexible respite care services.
Promoting Self-Sufficiency Through Personal Care
An important advantage of personal care is that it can promote independence for seniors. Rather than taking over tasks, our caregivers provide just the right level of support needed for individuals to preserve their abilities and maintain a sense of purpose.
Some ways we aim to enable independence through care include:
- Providing verbal cues and reassurance to allow clients to still participate in their own care
- Focusing on what clients *can* do rather than having caregivers take over completely
- Encouraging activities tailored to the individual’s interests and abilities
- Ensuring a home environment that enables mobility and self-sufficiency
- Stimulating memory and cognitive function through conversation and activity
At Helping Hands Homecare, we believe personal care should empower seniors on their journey through aging with purpose, pride and dignity. Contact us to learn more about our person-centered services.
We start a client relationship by providing a free consultation where together we can explore your individual needs and offer the most helpful and appropriate care plan.
