Being a caregiver for a family member with dementia or Alzheimer’s can be both rewarding and demanding. A successful caregiver must have a network of support to be successful — and one part of that support network is seeking professional help when needed.
Respite care can provide short-term relief from the pressures of being a full-time caregiver. Respite care is a temporary break from caregiving duties while your loved one stays in a caring, safe and professional environment. A respite care stay can renew energy and restore a sense of balance to a caregivers life.
At Friendship Village of Dublin, we offer respite care services whenever you need it. Professional caregivers provide short-term, around the clock care in a comfortable, secure environment. Loved ones can receive compassionate care and excellent amenities for a period of a couple of days up to a couple of months.
Benefits of a respite care stay can include assistance for a loved one after a hospital stay or during illness, a needed break for family members that may take on a primary caregiver role or needed oversight and care during a caregiver’s travel plans. Respite care can provide you and your loved one with revitalization to restore physical and emotional wellness, allowing you to become a better family member and caregiver.
