Respite Care in Cumming
Avoid setting yourself up for burnout as a family caregiver by ensuring you are able to get time off when you need it. By taking advantage of our respite care services in the Cumming area, you can continue supporting your loved one while also receiving the support you need to maintain your own well-being.
At Visiting Angels® Lake Lanier, we know how rewarding it can be to care for a loved one. However, this doesn't make the task any less daunting. In some cases, family caregivers find themselves feeling completely overwhelmed and unsure of how to handle the burden of their responsibilities. This stress can set the stage for caregiver burnout, which can in turn have a negative impact on the quality of care they are able to provide.
What is Respite Care?
Respite care is a solution that can make a huge difference in your loved one's care situation and your quality of life as their caregiver. This form of home care enables you to care for your loved one long-term while enjoying time off as needed to rest and recuperate from the stress of caregiving. For example, we can arrange for one of our care professionals to fill in for you while you take an out-of-town vacation or simply enjoy some much-needed self-care. We can also set up care visits on a regular schedule to make your weekly caregiving routine more manageable.
