Respite care is the provision of short-term, temporary relief to those who are caring for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home. With the challenging and important responsibility of being the primary caregiver, one needs to tend to one’s own physical, spiritual, and emotional needs. Respite care not only benefits the caregiver as it allows a needed opportunity to be rejuvenated, but also the person in one’s care.
Taking a break can help keep you strong.
Our caregivers at Extended Family Home Care are ready to be involved with the same quality of care for your loved one’s needs to enable you to temporarily step away from your responsibilities. Whether you need to run errands, tend to other family members, attend a gathering, or just have lunch with a friend, our respite care services allow you to distance yourself from the situation and know your family member is well cared for in your absence. Our respite care program is also a workable solution for family holiday travel, vacations, or out-of-town events such as a wedding or reunion. Respite care can help you significantly improve your ability going forward to deal with the responsibilities. Respite care can be arranged for just a few hours, an overnight, or for as long as needed.
Home Care Help When You Need It
You call mom daily, you take her to her doctor appointments and her hair appointments, you take her to church, you shop for her, you help with repairs around her home, and with bill paying and paperwork. You’d like to do even more, but you are busy with your job and your own family and you just can’t do it all.
If your mom is alone for a period of time, you worry about what can happen when she is home by herself. Has she been eating and taking her medication properly? Has she fallen? Does she feel lonely?
You are not alone.
Nearly one in every four Americans is caring for an older adult. The stress takes a toll.
Backup When You Need It
Extended Family Home Care provides companionship services to assist family caregivers in times of need. Social interaction and activity is essential for seniors in retaining cognitive abilities and physical health. We are there when you can’t be. When you have a companion, you are much more likely to accomplish tasks and participate in activities. We help encourage and facilitate hobbies and outdoor activities that keep your loved ones happy and healthy.
Above and Beyond
Our caregivers love what they do and it’s reflected in the quality care that our clients receive. We honor each client and employee birthday with a cake from Cake Crumbs, a boutique bakery in Denver. For example, we surprised a client with a birthday cake today and she was thrilled! Her caregiver, Leah, made her a newspaper hat and they lit candles and sang to Lou Lou for her birthday.
Making our clients happy makes us happy.
If you’d like to make your loved one happy and worry a little less when you aren’t around, give us a call today.
