There are multiple people involved when it comes to home care. Not only do patients benefit from respite care, but family members who act as caregivers do as well. Caring for a person with special medical needs, such as someone who is ill, disabled, or has Alzheimer’s disease can be particularly difficult. It is not uncommon to feel as though you have to do it alone because of the specialized care involved. Friends and family may want to help, but do not know the routines and needs of that person. Leaving your loved one in a nursing home is something that has been decided against, so what are you to do when you’re feeling burnt out? Who can you turn to that you can trust?
This is where home care agencies like MAS Home Care, come in. Having been providing Maine long term care services since 2008, MAS is dedicated to the care of your loved one. Respite care is a time for caregivers to take a much needed break from care duties. A moment to relax, catch up with friends, or just having uninterrupted time to get errands done is something that we all need. With respite care services, caregivers are able to do that while knowing the person who depends on them is being well taken care of.
Not only does the caregiver get his/her needs met, but the client does as well. In addition to the personalized care needed for their situation, they will also get the chance to interact with someone new and have the chance to develop a relationship. Most likely the caregiver and others living in the house are the only people they see most days. A fresh face means something to look forward to.
