Our compassionate, dedicated and trustworthy caregivers are available to provide homemaking and companionship services such as grocery shopping, running errands, meal planning or just a friendly visitor to provide companionship and social stimulation. Research shows that for those living with a chronic illness and/or debility related to the normal aging process, remaining at home is by far the first choice and is often the best option overall for physical and mental well- being.
Being a caregiver is a big responsibility and it’s easy to become burnt out and feel emotionally depleted.
You’re choosing to spend your time caring for your loved one but it’s important to occasionally take breaks to recharge. Respite care allows you to do just that.
You can take a little time off from your caregiving duties while ensuring that your senior’s needs are still being met.
Many times, caring for a client involves family, so Cranberry Home Care can also play a role in providing “respite care” for the family caregiver (i.e., a wife caring for a husband or a daughter/son caring for her/his parents). Constant caregiving can bring considerable stress, because the caregiver’s focus is centered on the one needing care. Very often, we see that when we give relief with daily routines, allowing the family caregiver(s) more time for themselves, the relationship strengthens.
In the 21st Century, the demands placed on family and other informal caregivers continue to escalate and will eventually affect nearly every American family.
It’s everyone’s greatest fear: a parent starts to forget things…he/she becomes bewildered, confused, and angry…finally, he/she can’t take care of himself/herself and needs full-time care.
If you find yourself caring for an aging loved one, you are not alone!
