We at ProMedica have the utmost respect for caregivers. It’s not an easy task. There are the physical demands of being there when needed – sometimes around the clock. Then there is the emotional toll of watching a loved one become so reliant on help. A caregiver’s dedication is nothing short of admirable.
We also recognized that caregivers need a little tending to. Often, they’re so busy taking care of someone else they forget to take care of themselves. If you’re a caregiver, it’s important to rely on the support systems around you, whether that’s family, friends or ProMedica respite care. We’d love nothing more than to help.
The term respite care might bring to mind hospice care, but that’s not all it includes. There are many ways you can enjoy a well-deserved break while your loved one is looked after in a variety of compassionate ways.
Our home health care services provide a variety of options that allow nurses and therapists to come into the home. An adult day care program lets loved ones get out and enjoy social activities while under medical supervision. And ProMedica Goerlich Center can help with care for those who have Alzheimer’s or dementia.
