Do you devote most of your time and energy to caring for a home bound loved one?
MAS Home Care knows how draining this can be. Caregiver burnout is a very real and dangerous consequence of not taking enough time to care for yourself, and can lead to high stress levels and depression.
Have you ever considered finding respite care for your loved one? Home care agencies like MAS Home Care provide respite care services for you or your family so you can have some time off.
What exactly is respite care?
Respite care is essentially short-term in-home care services. With spring in full bloom (early for us New Englanders!) and summer just around the corner, there will be many graduation parties, weddings, barbecues and beach days. MAS Home Care will match your home bound loved one with one of our trusted caregivers so you can take a much needed break. Our caregivers can provide services such as companionship, transportation, safety supervision and more, anywhere from two hours to round the clock care.
Maybe you have a family wedding this summer and you want mom to attend and share the experience – but you also want to be able to enjoy yourself without having to worry. Or perhaps you’d like to plan a beach day with the kids, but watching over both mom and your little munchkins is too much to handle. A caregiver can accompany you on these day trips to make sure mom is safe and happy while you build sandcastles with the kids.
Did mom just have surgery? Patients are being discharged from hospitals much earlier than they used to be, and you can’t take anymore time off work. MAS Home Care also provides hospital discharge care, with three packages (levels of care) you can choose from, depending on the needs of your loved one.
