It is estimated that about 3 in 5 people in the UK will become carers at some point in their lives, the majority of them family carers. It is understandable that your love and concern for family members means that you are willing to dedicate your time to care for them, but it is important to be able to look after your own health and wellbeing to ensure you can give them the best possible care.
Family carer relief allows you respite to look after yourself and take a break from your caring role, safe in the knowledge you are leaving your loved one in the care of a trained care professional. This could be on any type of schedule that suits you, whether you need a break for a few hours, want one day off a week or are planning on going on holiday we can provide you with regular ad-hoc care as and when you need it.
At Live In Solutions, we have experienced professional carers who can provide relief for family carers and take care of their needs such as feeding, washing, toileting, dressing, administering medication and even just providing companionship.
As well as care for a few hours during the day, we can provide overnight care at home should you need to stay away for the night to attend a function or for a much-needed break be it for just one night or a week or two. We can provide carers on a live-in or overnight basis to ensure your loved one is cared for overnight, so you can relax and get a good night’s sleep.
It is not selfish to need a break and it is in fact essential for your wellbeing and mental health for you to be able to take time away from your caring role. When caring for a family member, it can be difficult to remember to care for yourself – which is why we provide family carer relief to support you.
Our understanding and sympathetic carers know it can be difficult to leave a loved one in the care of someone else, but they will talk with you to understand the caring requirements and routines to ensure they can provide seamless care in your absence.
Respite care provides much needed relief for family carers and is essential for the healthy relationship between the carer and the cared for. It allows the family carer to be able to take time for themselves and interact with other family members, friends and their wider community – helping to prevent isolation and exhaustion. This allows them to reduce stress or frustration that may be building up and provides a greater level of patience once they return.
Live In Solutions can provide professional carers across the south east to allow you to rest and recharge to provide the best possible care for your loved one.
