Caring for an older person at home can be an extremely rewarding experience, but it also comes with challenges. Regular breaks are recommended for carers to recharge, refresh and help maintain their sense of well-being.
Respite care has benefits for both the carer and the person being cared for, and include:
- the chance for older people to socialise with others and participate in a variety of fun activities available at aged care Homes
- time for carers to focus on themselves and recharge so they can continue in their caring role for longer
- short-term support for the elderly who have been hospitalised for surgery or illness and need specialised help in their recovery
- the ability for carers to travel or attend to other responsibilities
- an experience of a different type of care that may be needed in the future
