When you have a family member or loved one who is heavily reliant on your time and caregiving, it can be stressful. You want to ensure that their final stages of life are comfortable and cared for, but you also need to take care of yourself and your life. The requirements of a caretakers can often include frequently handling medications, special equipment care, and assistance with feeding and toileting.
The physical and emotional toll of this duty can weigh heavy on caretakers, causing them to lose time, sleep, and energy. Rather than designating one person to most of the workload, some families have the ability to rotate family members to share the responsibility. However, not everyone is equipped mentally or emotionally to do this. At Serenity Hospice, we offer a special service to help friends and loved ones who are caring for their dying loved one to take care of themselves, get plenty of rest, and take time for the other pressing needs in their lives.
Serenity Hospice offers respite care services for end-of-life patients. Our respite care services provide patients to be cared for at an in-patient facility with licensed nursing staff. This service provides family caregivers with a much-needed break, relieving them of the worry of neglecting their loved one.
