Respite care for a loved one normally cared for at home.
Caring for an elderly parent or loved one at home can be physically and emotionally exhausting. Taking a well-earned break from caring can make all the difference to both the carer and the person being cared for. It is often easy to forget that caring for the carer is important too.
Senexus can assist in finding suitable short-term (respite) care in an aged care residence for a loved one who is usually cared for at home. We specialise in finding respite care placements in metropolitan Adelaide and the Adelaide Hills.
Respite care is available on both a planned and emergency basis. We can help you find short-term care whether you are going on holiday, or are suddenly unable to care for your loved one for a short period of time (such as due to an accident or illness).
I love my dad but felt like I was ready to scream. He has terrible eyesight and difficulty moving unaided, so I was going to his house every night after work to look after him. I felt disloyal even admitting that I needed a break. Senexus were great – supportive and knowledgeable, David arranged for my dad to have a week in respite care. It was the break that both of us needed.
Call us today to learn more about respite care in Adelaide and how a well-earned break can help you and your loved one.
