When caring for someone you love, remember that you need care, too.
Caring for a friend or family member is rewarding and challenging. Caregiving is a demanding task and it is easy to neglect one’s own health and well-being when you are involved with meeting your loved one’s needs. Caregivers need time off from their responsibilities to relieve stress and prevent burnout. You want to be there for your loved one, so let Benzie Senior Resources be there for you. We can also work in partnership with a hospice agency and are able to connect you with their services if their support is needed.
Respite care provides relief. Our home health care aides will come to your home and care for your loved one while you take a break, allowing you peace of mind while running errands, shopping, or just relaxing.
Dangers of Burnout. Perhaps you feel guilty because you think you aren’t doing enough, and you’re frustrated that you can’t do more. If you’re feeling depressed, anxious or overwhelmed, that is understandable—this is a difficult time for you.
Help is available. Contact us today to find out how our respite services can improve your well-being and help you continue to care for those who need you most by taking care of yourself.
