Being a family caregiver is a full-time job that can take a toll on a person. Majority of caregivers focus so much on their loved one that they forget to take care of themselves. This oversight can have a major impact on them physically, mentally, emotionally, and psychologically.
We explore the impact being a family caregiver has on someone and why they tend to work past their limit, along with the role respite care can have to allow caregivers to recharge to be ready to fulfill the demanding needs of their loved ones. Respite care provides short-term relief for caregivers that allows them to take a break and recharge themselves. Respite care can range from just the afternoon to several days or weeks. These services can be paid through the Medicaid Waiver or with private care. Contact us for details.
We offer transportation to our clients to all appointments, outings in the community, worship services, exercise in the community, store runs and what ever need is necessary that requires transportation.
