Caregiving can be overwhelming; that’s why we’re here to help
Looking after someone close to you with dementia can be rewarding and a wonderful thing to do for your loved one, enabling them to stay in their own home where they feel safest and most comfortable. But the demands of caregiving can be overwhelming and involve a great deal of stress, which can take its toll on your health and wellbeing. Taking care of yourself isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity, and even just a few days' rest can be enough to recharge your energy levels and enthusiasm.
Caremark’s respite care is a much-preferred solution to temporarily placing the person you care for in a residential care home. It gives you - as the main caregiver - the chance to take time out, whether simply to have a break from care-related duties, or for something more precise like attending an appointment or having to go away unexpectedly.
Respite care can also benefit the person you’re caring for, giving them a change of routine, different stimulation, or just someone new to chat to.
We want you to enjoy a well-deserved, worry free break
Whatever the reason, we’re here to help give you as much of a break as you need, improve stress levels, restore your energy, and bring a bit of balance back to your life. Our kind and highly qualified carers can visit your loved one’s home to take over the caring you do, giving you time out whenever you need it. This can be pre-arranged, or to cover an emergency situation where someone needs care urgently. Regardless of whether it’s a one-off 30-minute visit or 24-hour temporary live-in care, we offer a variety of options.
Here we look at what Caremark’s respite care services can offer you and your family.
