Short-Term Respite Care
It’s a generous and selfless gift to provide someone you love with the assistance they need to continue living in a safe environment at home. That being said, we understand there may be times you need to take a break from care-giving, which is why The Springs at South Biscayne offers respite care for those needing temporary assistance in caring for their loved ones.
Whether you’re traveling, handling business matters or recuperating from your own injury or illness, The Springs at South Biscayne provides quality respite care services in a safe, secure environment. Our professional respite care allows you to take time off from caregiving duties while we ensure that your loved one is being cared for by a support team you can trust. Our highly trained, caring professionals are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to offer peace of mind and relief for as long as you need it.
Caring for loved one’s can be stressful
Acting as caregiver to a family member can be richly rewarding; however, it is also highly demanding of your time and energy. In fact, a study showed that 38 percent of family caregivers find the task to be emotionally stressful. Caregivers often neglect their own self-care, and may need to find ways to integrate their personal needs as part of the regular routine to avoid caregiver burnout. Getting regular exercise, eating healthy meals and taking breaks will in turn allow you to provide even better care to your loved one. Experts also recommend that caregivers find emotional support—there are online resources as well as local support groups available. In fact, we hold a monthly caregiver support group at The Springs which provides opportunities to connect with other caregivers who are familiar with each other’s situation.
At The Springs of South Biscayne, we realize that it’s difficult to entrust your loved one’s care to someone else. You’ll find that our dedicated, professional staff will care for your loved one as they would their own family member—with dignity, compassion and respect. Respite care can give you the break you need to regroup and become re-energized. Many caregivers find themselves able to provide even better care for their loved ones after utilizing our trusted respite care services and taking the necessary time to handle whatever is needed in their own lives.
