Our respite care factors in not only the resident of Friendship Manor but how their care affects their family and caregivers. According to national non-profit helpguide.org, seeking support and maintaining one’s own health are key to managing the care giving years. Using respite care before you become exhausted, isolated, or overwhelmed is ideal, but just anticipating regular relief can become a lifesaver.

Respite can take many forms, but boils down to two basic ideas: sharing the responsibility for care giving and getting support for you. Finding the right balance requires persistence, patience, and preparation.

Planning your relief starts with analyzing needs…both yours and your loved one’s. As a caregiver, is support what you need most? Some free time? Help with transportation? Keep track of your daily activities then make a list of the areas and times when you most need help. Identifying your loved one’s requirements, abilities, and preferences will also help you find the right match. Are social activities primary? Assistance with walking, eating or medications? Mental stimulation? Exercise? Answering these questions will help you determine which respite options to pursue.

Assessing your needs for the type, skills, frequency and location of respite services is critical to your success.
