Who Qualifies For Respite Care?
When it comes to respite care, it’s just as important for the people around the resident as it is for the resident. If you’ve been caring for a loved one throughout the pandemic, you may be due a much needed break. Without this, you may put yourself at risk of burning out and not being able to provide your loved one with the same level of care. In order to help you to make this decision, we’ve put together the following guide on who qualifies for respite care.
Who Qualifies for our Respite Care in Staffordshire and Cheshire?
Here at Lovett Care, we offer respite care to adults that are aged over 65 who need help because of a recent accident, illness or family emergency. We also offer respite care to help those who are in need of a well-deserved break from their care duties.
We understand how much of a toll caring can take on the lives of people who choose to do it and we have great respect for each and every one of you. In order for you to continue providing your loved one with the best care, you should consider taking advantage of our respite care services across Staffordshire and Cheshire.
How Can Respite Care Help?
We completely understand how difficult it can be to let go of your responsibilities, even if just for a day. Therefore, our staff work hard and take time to understand the needs of each resident. Sometimes, our respite care is called upon by those who are recovering from an injury, illness or hospital treatment. Thanks to our 24/7 help on hand, you can rest assured that you’re in the best place to make a quick, easy recovery.
In addition to helping the resident, we can also take any pressure off your shoulders, even if only for a short time. This service can help you in a number of ways, one of which is to ensure that you socialise, unwind and reset your life. Not only that, but you can feel comfortable knowing that your loved one is still receiving the same treatment as before. The benefits don’t end with you either as your loved one will also benefit from socialising with other residents and carers. This can be particularly beneficial if it’s likely that your loved one’s condition will eventually lead to a care home residency in the future.
