Respite Care in St. Cloud
When caring for a loved one leads you to neglect your own needs, it's important to take a step back. Family caregivers who do not have access to respite care often suffer from burnout, which can affect their own well-being in addition to their loved one's care. Fortunately, respite care is available across the St. Cloud area. The compassionate caregivers at our local care agency work to give family caregivers time off that allows them to find balance in their relationships and tend to their own needs. As a result, family caregivers can take a break without relinquishing their role in their loved one's care.
What is Respite Care?
Generally, respite care is considered as home care in a temporary form. Professional caregivers step in on a short-term basis, allowing overworked family caregivers to take a vacation or spend a few hours away from the house. This type of care can be delivered according to the preferences of the family caregiver and the needs of the senior. Some families request ongoing care on a weekly basis, while others just need to arrange care for a loved one while they're away on vacation.
