Caregiving can be a difficult job that brings on stress which affects the caregiver’s mental and physical wellbeing. A short interval of rest or relief can allow the caregiver to renew strength, gain perspective and maintain balance between caring for another person and caring for him/herself. By accepting respite, you make time for yourself and other responsibilities while knowing your loved one is in good hands.
Respite workers can:
• Assist with bathing, dressing and toileting
• Prepare and serve light meals or snacks
• Remind an individual to take medications
• Provide transportation for enjoyable outings
• Provide companionship
