Do You Need a Break? Consider Respite Care
“I can’t do it all!”
Anyone who has been a caregiver for any length of time will tell you, sometimes you just don’t feel like you can continue another moment. Between the constant demands of caregiving, along with your immediate family’s needs, career, marriage, friends – sometimes something has to give.
It is never a good idea to put yourself last for too long. Don’t wait until you get to the point where you feel you can’t go on.
What would you do with an extra four hours a week?
Have coffee with friends? Have a “date night” with your spouse? How about that Dr. or salon appointment you have been putting off?
Respite care from home instead can give you that time. It also gives your mom or dad a chance to spend time with someone new, which can boost their spirits for long after the visit. In fact, rather than presenting the schedule change as something YOU need to do, you may be able to overcome possible resistance by planning to have the CAREGiver take mom or dad to do one of their favorite activities, read together, play cards or anything else that they enjoy doing.
Home Instead Senior Care Houston can provide respite care daily, weekly or as needed. We are happy to arrange care for just a few hours, overnight or 24-hour care while you’re away.
