Caregiver Respite

Providing informal caregiving services for a loved one is common practice for millions of Americans. It is also common for family caregivers to suffer the negative impacts of caregiving that can affect their everyday well-being. Informal caregivers often experience high levels of stress, lack of sleep, and overall poor health. This impacts their careers, families, and even the ones receiving the care. At Assisting Hands Home Care, we offer respite care services to give informal caregivers a much-deserved break. We will work around your schedule to get you the time away that you need.

The Effects of Informal Caregiving

By “informal caregivers”, we are referring to those who provide caregiving services to a loved one. A common example is an adult providing care for their aging parent. In many cases, these situations lead to a variety of negative effects that should be brought to light as early as possible. If you find yourself in the role of “informal caregiver”, we encourage you to take the following points into consideration:

  • Out of the 65 million+ Americans who provide informal caregiving services for a loved one, roughly 25% are in poor health themselves.
  • Roughly 2/3 of all informal caregivers are women.
  • Lack of sleep, increased responsibilities, and added stress are the primary contributors to poor health. They can impact careers, families, and even the quality of care being administered.

By recognizing these statistics, we hope that you can better manage your schedule and expectations, and prepare for the road ahead. We can help you as frequently or infrequently as needed with our respite care services.
