At Assisting Hands Home Care, we provide respite care services in Waukesha, WI to relieve family caregivers and take over the care for their loved ones while the family caregiver takes time off. You can expect our caregiver to provide the same effective care while the family caregiver gets time to rest and take care of personal business.
It is very common for families to come to the aid of their elderly relatives when they need care and assistance to live at home. Sometimes, families can even designate a relative as the primary home caregiver for their senior loved ones who will ensure that they get the care and assistance they need. Family caregivers are beneficial for those receiving care because there is a high level of comfort and familiarity and the family caregiver already knows the type of care their loved ones need.
However, the care needs of seniors will change over time and in many cases, the family caregiver will have to become their full-time caregiver. This can be difficult for many family caregivers to handle, especially if they have careers or children of their own that need their care and attention. Being a family caregiver can also be stressful as the long hours lead to a lack of sleep which can result in physical and even mental health issues.

The Importance of Respite Care
Respite care is beneficial for the family caregiver as well as your loved ones who receive care. Family caregivers put in long hours of caregiving and the fatigue they experience can make the care they provide less effective. Exhaustion leads to burnout which can cause the caregiver to experience physical and mental health issues that make it even harder to provide quality care. Family caregivers may also struggle to find personal time for their careers, spouses, children, and other things in their personal lives.
Family caregivers are at major risk of health issues as stress and lack of sleep can take a toll physically and cause depression. Roughly two-thirds of family caregivers are dealing with their own health issues. Family caregivers can take better care of their own health with regular time off and tend to their personal business and immediate families. This allows them to return to their caregiving duties refreshed which will result in better care.
Our respite care services can benefit your family caregiver in the following ways:
- Planned time off
- More time to rest for increased energy
- Improved physical and mental well-being
