Concerned about leaving your loved one alone? Concerned about not knowing where your family member will be able to find care during their recovery? Concerned about being able to provide for your family member while they get better? There are respite care options out there for you and your family member. You can find respite care that will work with your insurance company so that you don’t have to worry about being covered by your insurance while they are at the hospital.
One of the many respite care options is to go through with home-stay rehab. This is an option for those who are recovering from a surgery or trauma and would otherwise be too ill to live in a nursing home. The goal here is to rehab their body so that they can be able to survive on their own. They will be required to go through physical therapy, but they will have a support group of family members or friends available to help during their time there. This is an excellent option for those with physical injuries but who do not want to be left entirely alone at home.
There are also respite care options for those with mental health needs. Sometimes people need to work with therapy so that they can get their emotions under control. Sometimes they just need to be given some distance from their loved ones so that they can deal with their problems without distractions. A trained staff will work with your loved one to develop an in-home program that works to control depression and anxiety. They will be able to stay away from their medications and stay busy with therapeutic activities so that they do not become overwhelmed by their disorder.
Of course, you can also take some time away from the home while still working with a caregiver. You may need time away from work for a variety of reasons. Perhaps your loved one has a demanding job that takes all of their time. Perhaps they just need to spend more time with their family, doing things that include taking care of you.
No matter what type of care you or a loved one are in need of, you can take a break. Just don’t expect that your situation will be resolved immediately. There will always be some sort of transition involved. It is okay to look for support groups who can help you during this time as well. This is where having ongoing care and support from others becomes most important
