Caring for a senior that requires assistance with daily living can be a rewarding experience, but it can also be very demanding. Respite provides a break from this responsibility.
Respite breaks give a carer a chance to catch up with the tasks of running a household, undertake paid employment, study or volunteering or just have some free-time to recover from the demands of caring. For the senior needing care, respite offers a chance to be with others, gain additional life experiences participate in the community and sometimes have a much needed break from the carer!
Respite works best when it improves the quality of life of both the carer and care-recipient. Respite has been shown to reduce stress levels in carers, enhance quality of life and be a crucial part of maintaining a caring role.
Respite can be provided for an hour, day, night or even a couple of weeks.
Feros Care provides a range of respite options including: Residential Respite (high or low care weekly packages) and In-Home Respite where the care is delivered in the home of the care-recipient or carer.
Feros Care respite services are provided by a dedicated team of professionally trained nurses, personal care assistants and hospitality staff. Our staff have a passion for working with seniors and see it as a privilege to do so.
