Taking care of your loved one can be physically and emotionally draining, especially if you don’t take time for yourself. That’s why it is important for you to seek respite from your caregiving once in a while. If you need to take a few days to rejuvenate yourself, respite care offers you that opportunity. Cedar Crest is happy to provide the time you need and will care for your loved one as a part of our family, providing him or her with the best care around.
Is Respite Care right for you?
1) Are you experiencing any side effects of stress?
If you are experiencing a loss of energy, difficulty with concentration or memory, change in appetite and even health problems, then stress might be to blame. It is important to remember that you cannot care for others if you do not care for yourself first.
2) When was the last time you had time to yourself?
Although it might seem a bit selfish to take a vacation when someone is relying on your care, that could not be further from the truth. A well-deserved break will help you return to your loved one stronger and replenished so that you are better able to meet their needs. In the long run, a vacation is one of the best ways to prevent burnout and keep you going.
3) Is your role as a caregiver affecting your job?
Are you taking longer breaks, finding yourself exhausted at work, or not being able to take on as many projects as you once were? If so, then respite care might be just what you need to revamp your career and help you get back on track.
4) Is Cedar Crest Respite really going to help?
Of course! If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then Cedar Crest is the perfect place for short-term care for the ones you love. You can take the time you need while resting assured that your loved one is in good hands.
