Respite care is an option available to those families who prefer to care for a loved one in a home setting, but want or need to take a break for a short period of time.
When your loved one requires senior care, you want to help in every way possible. Unfortunately, there are times when personal limitations or unforeseen circumstances prevent you from providing the appropriate care at home. Wingate Healthcare can help.
Respite care is for families who prefer to care for a loved one in a home setting but want or need a break. Especially helpful when your loved one is very ill or unstable, this care option gives you, the caregiver, time to recover from an often overwhelming, stressful experience. Respite care can be as short as a few days or as long as several weeks; it is completely your choice. Our admissions team works with the caregivers, the resident, and the resident’s doctors to assess care needs.
Caring for the caregiver is one of the most important aspects of sustaining an extended home care situation. As a caregiver, you may be unwittingly ignoring signs of exhaustion, illness, or depression in an effort to care for your loved one. Stress and sleep deprivation contribute to caregiver burnout, causing persistent symptoms of depression, anxiety, irritability and anger. Wingate Healthcare's staff offers comfort and support to the friends and family of each resident to help alleviate this stress. We understand the impact that the warmth of a caregiver can have and offer personalized, compassionate senior long term care, post acute care, and rehab.
Respite care is offered at all Wingate Healthcare facilities.
