The role of caregiver can be demanding, stressful and emotionally exhausting. It is important that carers look after themselves so that they can continue their role. Respite care is a short-term care arrangement which gives a break (or respite) to both parties and ensures that the very best care continues to be provided.
Both carers and their loved ones benefit from respite. Meeting new people and staying in a new environment can be a breath of fresh air to those who are home-bound and rely solely on one carer. It can provide mental stimulation and enjoyment.
The Bays Aged Care can provide respite care. Please contact us to check availability or for more information.
