What is respite care and how do you know when it is needed? Respite care is when the primary caregiver: often a spouse, son, or daughter, needs a break from the caregiver role. Visiting Angels of Spartanburg, Taylors & Greer is brought in for this purpose. The family member can then leave the home to complete their personal tasks of appointments, shopping, or just a time to rejuvenate. This time away allows them a much-needed break from the caregiver role. They can leave the home knowing their loved one is taken care of by one of our angels and come back feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Respite care may be needed if the caregiver is feeling overwhelmed, stressed, or falling behind on their own personal care. Sometimes a 4 hour break a week is all that is needed to make all the difference in the world. This is not the time to feel guilty that you are not doing enough as the family member. Caregiving is a difficult job and if you, as the caregiver, are becoming run down, you cannot care to the best of your ability.
