Caregiver Helping Senior Woman in KitchenWe understand the feeling of wanting to be there for an older adult at every waking moment to make sure that you can support them through whatever they may need to live life to the fullest as they age at home. However, the patience, compassion, emotion, and physical requirements of being a  caregiver can be taxing. These skills don’t come from a bottomless tank. That’s why Continuum offers respite care services for older adults and the people who help care for them!

What Does Respite Care Entail?

Respite care services include…

  • Meal preparation
  • Supporting stimulating activity
  • Exercise support
  • Medication management
  • Dressing
  • Bathing
  • And more!

We have been providing these services and more in the St Louis area while primary caregivers take time for themselves for self-care and rejuvenation. One person’s care plan is never exactly the same as another, so our care professionals are also well equipped to offer personalized care that fits a senior’s particular needs. And working with the most trusted home care agency in the St Louis area, you can rest assured that loved ones will be in the best hands possible.

What are the Benefits of Respite Care?

  • Rest is beneficial for everyone involved. Having the chance to take a breather from time to time gives you a moment to refuel for the sake of your own physical and mental health.
  • Respite helps you bounce back stronger! Staying well rested also means that you can come back to your responsibilities sharper and with more patience than before. It also gives you time to avoid compassion fatigue as you continuously show up emotionally for the senior you love.
  • Caregiving takes a village! If you’re caring for an older adult you love, then you know that handling it on your own is a difficult venture. Allowing someone in the home to lend a helping hand when needed will bolster the network of support the senior you love has around them and take some pressure off your shoulders.
