Live In Respite Care

Older couples such as retired parents will invariably care for each other, and this can be manageable at first, however as they become older, the main carer of the family will find it much harder to cope with the caring duties they once provided with ease. This is especially the case where the person being cared for has substantially more care and support needs. Often the couple will try and hide that they are not coping as well as they would have liked for fear of one of them being placed into residential care, as was often the case.

With a live in care service, it is now, not only more financially viable choice, but it also enables older couples to stay together in their home. A Live in Carer is also able to come with you on holiday to provide the care and support needed so that the holiday can be enjoyed by everyone.

It is important to take regular breaks, even at the early stages of caring for a loved one. It has many benefits, such as:

  • Being rested and returning with a fresh head and recharged energy
  • Taking care of yourself for your own wellbeing
  • Being able to keep healthy and positive relationship dynamics
  • Keeping a sense of self and taking time to do the things you enjoy
  • Enabling quality time with your loved one without the caring duties taking up all of your time together
