What Is Respite Care?

When a primary caregiver seeks respite care, they’re transferring their responsibilities as a caregiver to a trusted professional, friend, or relative. In doing so, they receive temporary relief from their duties. There is a range of reasons a person may seek respite care for their loved one, such as:

  • In order to complete responsibilities at work
  • To practice basic self-care
  • To travel with other family members
  • In order to meet up with friends and family members

In short, respite care allows caregivers to get a well-deserved break. Some of our community members schedule respite care services a few days a week or a couple of hours a day. It can also be scheduled as part of a weekly routine or as the caregiver needs it. Furthermore, there is no preset time period that caregivers can use respite care, so our team can also accommodate your vacations or other extended breaks.

With the help of Wickshire Senior Living Norman, you can get support in caring for your loved one using flexible scheduling and customized services. We strive to help older adults of all abilities to live safely and comfortably in a community of people who care about them. Furthermore, we will work with them to make their days a little better through our activities which stimulate them physically, intellectually, and emotionally.

Why Are Short-Term Care Services Necessary?

Caring for your loved one can be incredibly rewarding but also quite challenging. It’s also critical to recognize that being a caregiver comes along with physical strain, loss, and strain. Therefore, they need to remember to practice self-care and necessary breaks in order to ensure that they can continue to provide the care their loved one needs. If they don’t account for their own needs and take necessary breaks, it can risk their wellbeing and physical and mental health.

Fortunately, respite services provide a reliable support network for many caregivers. With the help of short-term care services, many adult children rediscover the joy they once experienced in taking care of their parent or loved one. We work alongside you and your family to find a balance between caring for yourselves and caring for your loved one. When you reach out to our team, you’ll find professionals who are passionate about caring for older adults, willing to build meaningful connections, and happy to provide the support they need.
