Who Needs Respite Care?

Tracy Martin, Corporate Director of Sales and Marketing:

“We see this time and time again where a family reaches out to us because they are burned out with their own lives and then taking care of their loved one on top of everything else in their lives. There is no shame in asking for help. As a matter of fact, having them stay with us will not only benefit you it will benefit them. In the world we live in today with the pandemic and COVID still so prevalent, we are the expert in senior care and oversight.

So have them come stay with us, it’s a vacation for you both and who knows they might like it and make it their permanent home.”

Respite care can be necessary for the caregiver to avoid burnout and allow them time to take care of themselves without neglecting their own needs.

The type of service is beneficial because it allows both parties to get out of the house while ensuring that there are adequate individuals providing services to the loved one in need.

Here at Pomeroy Living, we offer the most exceptional respite care so you can have peace of mind knowing your loved one is in the best hands.

What Is Respite Care?

Respite care can be defined as “short-term relief from the stress of daily activities, providing rest to caregivers.” This allows them to take some time off while knowing their loved one is safe and in good hands.

Benefits of Respite Care

There are many benefits to respite care, both for the caregiver and the loved one in need.

For the caregiver, respite care can provide a much-needed break from their daily responsibilities. This break can help them avoid burnout and ensure that they continue providing quality care for their loved ones. Here at Pomeroy Living, we offer custom plans tailored specially for families seeking respite care.

For the loved one in need, respite care can provide a safe and supportive environment while the caregiver is away. This can be especially beneficial for those who are unable to live independently.

Respite care is also beneficial for the child. It allows them to be supported by trained and able to meet their needs while allowing their parents time away from their responsibilities.

Who Needs Respite Care?

Respite care can be necessary for the caregiver to avoid burnout while allowing them time to care for themselves without neglecting their own needs.

Children with Disabilities

Parents of children with disabilities may find it challenging to break from their responsibilities. Respite care can provide them with the opportunity to recharge and return refreshed, ready to continue caring for their child.

Children with disabilities may require a higher level of care, and the demands can be very taxing on their parents.

Aging Parents

As parents age, they may require more assistance with everyday activities. Respite care can provide them with temporary relief from their daily responsibilities while ensuring that they are safe and receiving the care they need.

It’s been shown that there is often a negative correlation between parental stress levels and child well-being. To avoid caregiver burnout, respite services are recommended for those caring for children with special needs.

Adults with Disabilities

Adults with disabilities may require a higher level of care than typically provided in a home environment. Respite care can provide them with the support they need while giving their caregivers a break.

Elderly with Dementia

For those with dementia, it can be tough to have a loved one go missing. This is why respite care services are necessary for elderly individuals who may wander off due to disorientation or confusion.

These individuals must remain in an environment where they feel safe and secure while their caregiver takes some time away.

In many cases, the loved one in need may not even realize that their caregiver is away. This can ensure that they can keep up a routine and avoid feelings of isolation or abandonment.

It’s important to note that respite care services don’t have to be long-term. We offer stays from as little as two weeks to as long as a month. Pomeroy Living offers peace of mind so that the caregiver can return to their duties refreshed and ready to continue providing care.
