The Importance of Respite Care During the Holidays: Tips from Right at Home

| Carer Support

The holiday season is a busy time for all. Whether you’re working or taking time off, there’s still an incredible number of domestic chores, gift buying, and family visits to plan.

We understand that caring for loved ones at this time can be even more stressful than usual. This is where we can offer our help.

Right at Home Australia provides respite care for family and informal caregivers. Whether you need one of our expert caregivers for an hour, a day, or a week, we have you covered.

How Respite Care Works

Respite care offers the relief you may need, allowing you to get those chores done, go to the grocery store, or book that much-needed manicure. All the while, you can rest assured that your loved one is being cared for in the best of hands, allowing your mind, body and soul an essential holiday.

Depending on your needs, as well as those of your loved one, a respite care worker will come to your home for a few hours. These visits could be once a week, or three times a week. While the respite care worker tends to your loved you, you're free to getaway. You can use these hours to meet friends for lunch, attend a hair appointment, or even read a book in the backyard. The point is, this is your time to rest and recover.

We Can Help

When you call Right at Home, one of our respite care professionals will visit your home and provide you with a free assessment to determine your needs, as well as those of your loved one. Our professionals are flexible and will partner with you to determine the best schedule for respite care.
