As caring is our mission at 1st Family Home Care , we know that taking care of an older or ill family member can be enormously rewarding as much as it is also not an easy task. It can be physically and emotionally draining and challenging for the entire family at times. This may include tasks such as preparing meals, housekeeping, grooming, or even calling 911 in the event of an emergency.
Respite care service is meant to give family and primary caregivers a much-needed break. Primary caregivers can use respite hours at any point in time to help them avoid becoming exhausted and overwhelmed by their most precious one. There can be times, when the caretaker may have to attend to other matters when he may not be able to take care of the disabled member. Under such situations when a break is necessary, the family members can put their dear one under respite care.
We, at 1st Family Home Care are trained professionals who understand these helpless times and can offer respite care to relieve the family members, as they take a break and have personal time for themselves. It can
- Allow them to take a vacation
- Chance to take care of their own health
- Allow them socialize
- Allow them to spend time with spouse and children
Sometimes, due to some type of medical situations or age related circumstances, our loved ones may require constant medical or nursing interventions. While the family members may not be willing to send their dear ones away to medical or long-term facilities. Most patients also may not be willing to lose whatever little freedom they have left to themselves. At 1st Family Home Care we provide members with full-time, around the clock care. In these cases, live-in care allows your loved one to remain in the comfort of his or her home and maintain as much independence as possible while ensuring the highest level of safety.
