Some seniors are fortunate to have family caregivers who support their goals and help them to remain safe and comfortable at home. When this is the case, professional caregiver services are often viewed as less essential, but they still offer many benefits.
Respite Care Services Provided:
- Support with ADLs and IADLs
- Companionship for homebound seniors
- Sensory stimulation and conversation
- Ways for family caregivers to reduce stress
- Peace of mind when family caregivers need to be away
Respite care is provided by Sunshine Homecare to give family caregivers those much needed breaks. Time away might be used to travel, take a vacation, hit the gym, attend to personal needs or manage their own work or family schedule. Some families enlist the help of a respite care professional on a regular basis, and others prefer to use it more occasionally.
In addition to empowering family caregivers to enjoy time away from their loved ones, Sunshine Homecare’s respite services also provide seniors with new opportunities to build relationships, socialize and understand they are never a burden. This improves relationships and supports physical and emotional health for both the family caregiver and the senior.
