Our Family Respite Care Services
At Minster Home Care, we understand the physical and emotional strain that often comes with caring for loved ones. Balancing things like employment, a wider family and other commitments is a near-impossible task – which is why our family respite care can be called upon to give you the break you need.
Our Family Respite Care service is there to provide a helping hand when you are busy, have other commitments or simply need some time to recharge. Being healthy and supported as a family caregiver is vital, as this will result in better quality time being spent between you and your family member. The support we provide ranges from an afternoon to several days of care for your loved one. Our care team can also provide different levels of support, whether that is supporting you while you are caring for your family member, or taking over completely while you get some much needed rest.
Being a family carer is undoubtedly a noble and selfless act. Many family caregivers are driven by a sense of responsibility and enjoy providing care to their parents, gladly accepting the opportunity to repay the care they’ve received earlier in their lives. Although undoubtedly a rewarding experience, there are certainly challenges that can leave family caregivers stressed and exhausted. In turn, this can have negative physical and mental health affects – leaving family caregivers feeling ‘burnt out’ and unable to provide the level of care their loved ones require.
For many family caregivers, it is a balancing act between providing care to a loved one and being able to manage the rest of their commitments. If the care provided by a family member can be sustained with support from our Family Respite carers, the longer the loved one can remain in the comfort of their own home.
Many first-time family caregivers can also struggle with providing extensive care when their loved one has a terminal illness or is reaching the end of their life. Understandably, this often leads to confusion, anxiety and anticipatory grief. Our carers are always on hand to support you through this process, as our service includes Palliative Care which can be utilised in conjunction with our Family Respite Care service.
Minster Home Care is a fully regulated service that involves extensive training, strict checks and a rigorous interview process – all of which are in place to make sure we have a team of professional, adaptable and compassionate carers.
Please get in touch with Minster Home Care to discuss which of our services would be most beneficial for you or your loved one.
