Respite care frequently asked questions
A respite is a temporary, intermittent break from caregiving that allows you to return refreshed and renewed. Without allowing yourself to take a break, you risk providing your loved one with substandard care. If you are always stressed and exhausted, you could become less patient, more prone to mistakes, and at ever-greater risk of total burnout. Respite care at The Birches will give you time to care for yourself and help make caregiving more manageable.
As a caregiver, you know the preferences and routines of your loved one better than anyone, so it’s natural to wonder if someone else can provide the same level of care. At The Birches, our staff will work with you and your loved one to create a personalized plan designed to keep them engaged.
Our staff members at The Birches are highly trained and work every day with residents who have Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Before choosing any form of respite care, it’s important to figure out what type of care is most appropriate for your loved one.
