Need Help? Respite Care Might Be the Answer

Caring for an older family member who has gotten to the point they are having trouble doing normal daily activities can be a wonderful experience. Although, there are times it can be quite demanding, especially if you are trying to balance it with other responsibilities in life. If you are a caregiver for a family member and dealing with dementia care in Hawaii or Alzheimer’s care in Hawaii, then respite care can be very helpful when you need a little break to recharge your batteries.

 

Respite Care, What is it?

 

Respite care is a way of getting short-term help with caring for your family member in need. Our respite care service can provide you the relief you need if you need to get away for a few days, or even a few weeks. We normally classify our respite care services as care that continues for up to 30 days.

 

Sometimes a primary caregiver is a little nervous about leaving the care of the family member with someone other than himself or herself. This is a completely normal feeling, but we have found dealing with a new situation and new people for a short time can be exciting for the person receiving care.

 

Remember, part of dealing Alzheimer’s care in Hawaii or other health concerns in the later years of life is keeping the mind stimulated. Keeping the mind stimulated with new information and new experiences can be very beneficial.

 

Additionally, if you need to have someone else take over caregiver responsibilities for a short time it is important to ensure they are qualified and prepared. Sometimes emergencies can happen to the elderly when we least expect it. If you need a break, having a qualified caregiver that is prepared to deal with medical emergencies and experienced with these types of situations will give you the confidence and peace of mind needed to concentrate on your other tasks.
