Get Away From Your Second Full-Time Job
Taking care of your elderly parent or relative is often a full-time job. You may find yourself awake at odd hours of the night, coming back home for the smallest of tasks, or consumed with running errands weekly or even daily.
While you may be more than willing to sacrifice the time and energy for your loved one, taking care of them can often feel like a full-time job. At Thrive, we understand the need to provide everything you can for your elderly parent or relative. But we also understand the importance of taking care of yourself, and prioritizing your own rest whenever necessary. We can help you find the short-term answer you need.
Sit Back and Relax
Respite Care is temporary care provided by others giving the family caregivers a chance to take a well needed break for rest, travel or the well needed time to replenish themselves before they return to the daily tasks of caregiving. In summary, it’s a short term vacation from your loved one’s needs.
Doing Everything That You Do
In Home Care agencies can provide this service or Assisted Living and Memory Care communities can also care for your loved one temporarily providing everything that you’ve provided along with companionship and activities depending on what you choose.
