Respite Care in Summerlin, NV
Respite care is a specific type of care designed to provide care for seniors so the primary caregiver can take a short break from care. With Comfort Keepers, there are no limits placed on the reasons for a caregiver's respite. Many caregivers are simply exhausted and want to catch up on sleep. Others use the time to take care of their own health and medical needs, run errands, socialize with friends, or even take a short vacation.
The primary purpose of a respite is to allow a primary caregiver to refresh their body and mind in order to maintain their health and provide the best possible care. Research indicates that family caregivers who do not take regular time off for themselves often experience caregiver burnout. This is especially true for caregiver's who provide long-term or round-the-clock care. The most common symptoms of burnout include chronic fatigue, anxiety, memory problems, social withdrawal, irritability, and excessive weight gain or loss. Caregivers who reach the point of burnout are also more than twice as likely to suffer from chronic and recurrent illnesses and depression. Ironically, burnout makes it almost impossible to provide safe and effective senior care.
Many family caregivers do not take regular respites because they are afraid while they are away their senior loved one will not receive the care and support they need. Comfort Keepers respite care services can provide the peace of mind caregivers need to take a break.
