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).
My dad was in a tricky situation, health wise. We had already spent weeks looking for the right nursing home when my neighbour recommended Senexus. Within hours they had provided us with a list of four facilities to look at and the second home we visited was the right one. I can’t thank them, or my neighbour, enough.
Call us today to learn more about respite care in Adelaide and how a well-earned break can help you and your loved one.
