Respite Care

Caregiving is a demanding and difficult job, the work is never done. Very few people are equipped to handle caring for a frail or ill loved one alone and for a long period of time. They need breaks. They need relief. They could use some "respite care."

Respite is by definition - a vacation, a time of peace. Respite care is given when someone other than the caregiver steps in to handle the daily needs of elderly parents, or a spouse. A respite break allows the caregiver to tend to their own mental and physical health. It is a time for self-care.

Respite care programs are specifically designed to provide temporary, short term relief to the primary caregivers of an ailing individual who might otherwise need to be placed in an assisted living or skilled nursing facility. Across the United States, more than 50 million individuals currently employ the services of respite care programs.

Many at-home caregivers choose respite care that is performed in a specialized facility, like here at Windsor. With this option, the patient is temporarily moved in, for a period of time ranging from 10 days to a few weeks. The benefit of opting for this choice is the fact that the facility is professionally staffed and will have better access to emergency services, should the need arise.

With over 50 years of experience, we know respite care can be a positive break for both the caregiver and the person receiving care. Respite care can also address some of the unmet needs of the loved one who is ill or frail. Maybe they need more activity. Could they use some mental and social stimulation from someone other than you? Do they need more help with dressing, eating, walking or taking medication? Or, perhaps some time away from each other would simply be good for your relationship.

All of the decisions about your loved one’s care can become very overwhelming. Our caring staff would be happy to answer any questions you may have and show you around our facility. Let us help you get the break you need. Call Windsor today!   (330) 499-8300 ext.402
