Wyndmoor, PA Respite Care
The responsibility of caring for an elderly, chronically ill, or disabled loved one becomes a part of one's daily routine. Respite care services provide a well needed break to a caregiver for short periods, usually 5-7 days at a time.
Whether it is a planned stay or an emergent situation, Chestnut Hill Lodge Health and Rehabilitation offers respite care through hospice or home care agencies or through private requests. This brief time away will give a caregiver time to take care of and pamper themselves.
Monitoring one's own health is essential in being able to continue as a caregiver. Exhaustion, isolation and being overwhelmed are a few of the feelings expressed by many caregivers. Being able to have those few days to themselves is beneficial in allowing one to proceed with the care of a loved one to the best of their ability.
