Overview of Respite Care Services
Some seniors are fortunate to have family caregivers who provide most of the necessary support and assistance they require on a daily basis. When this is the case, professional caregiver services are often viewed as non-essential, but they can still be beneficial.
Respite Care Services Provides:
- Support with activities of daily living and instrumental activities of daily living
- Sensory stimulation
- Stress reduction for family caregivers
- Peace of mind for family caregivers
Respite care is provided by Salus Homecare of Orange County to give family caregivers a necessary break. This might allow them to take a vacation, attend to their own medical needs or manage their own work or family schedule. Some families take advantage of respite care on a regular basis, and others prefer to use it intermittently.
In addition to providing family caregivers with a much needed break, our Salus Homecare of Orange County’s respite care reduces stress, improves relationships between seniors and their loved ones and supports the physical and mental health of family caregivers.
