The difficulties associated with caring for a loved one
There’s no denying that looking after an unwell or frail loved one is a tough job. In some cases, with enough dedication and commitment, it’s possible to manage without the continuous help of professional care agencies. However, a lesson which many people learn is that caring for someone else in the family can leave very little time for the carer. Families and marriages can begin to suffer from the pressures of constant home care. This can lead to the person being cared for feeling guilty and embarrassed, as if they are an unwanted burden.
Giving you time off from demanding daily care situations
We understand that you may wish to undertake the care of an unwell relative the majority of the time. However, it’s important to give yourself time away. This can be for a few hours to get necessary tasks done, or for a few weeks whilst you take a holiday. It’s obvious that you’ll want to leave your loved one with the most comprehensive care whilst you’re away, and this is where we can help ease matters. With respite care available across a wide timescale, you can have the time you need for yourself without compromising your peace of mind about the safety and care of your loved one. We can offer home care across Aylesbury, Beaconsfield & Marlow.
