Respite Care in Central Georgia
For a hospice patient, being able to stay in their own home is a godsend. But for the friends or family members who act as caregivers, the duty of taking care of the hospice patient 24/7 can become overwhelming. That’s why Hospice Care Options supports at-home caregivers by providing respite care whenever necessary, up to five days in a nursing home or hospice care facility.
What is hospice respite care?
Hospice respite care provides short-term relief for in-home caregivers of hospice patients. With respite care, the patient is temporarily checked into a hospice facility or nursing home under our supervision so that the caregiver can get a much-needed break to take care of other things, take a short trip, or just take some time for themselves to relax and rejuvenate. We step in to fill the caregiver’s shoes while they’re away, caring for the patient with the same level of compassion and attention so the caregiver can relax in peace.
Why is respite care important?
Caregiving is a more-than-full-time job. Emotionally and physically taxing, caregivers suffer from high levels of burnout. After all, they’re not only caring for their hospice patients full time but also managing their own lives, families, and jobs, as well. Taking a break with the help of a hospice respite care service allows caregivers to receive the break they so deserve., so they can come back refreshed to the very important job of caring for their terminally ill loved one.
