(provides short term relief for family caregivers)
Although caring for your loved one is an act of love, often people find that they are pushed into the role of a caregiver when they least expect it. It takes only an illness, accident or unplanned surgery for an adult child or family member to find themselves in a new role as a caregiver. Unfortunately, it is a job that few people are physically or mentally prepared for or trained to take on.
At Era Life Care we understand how stressful and busy life can be. Juggling work, raising a family, tending to your home and caring for a sick or elderly loved one can be a challenge.
Often caregivers disregard their own wellbeing by neglecting to sleep properly, skipping meals, foregoing exercise, and postponing personal medical appointments while attending to loved ones. If this is you, it is time to ask yourself “What would happen to my family, if I became ill?” As a caregiver, it is critical that you are mindful of your own health.
The good news is that Era Life Care can provide a helping hand through our Respite Services Program by assisting with the care of your sick or elderly loved ones. At Era Life Care we offer hourly and 24 hour care so that you can ensure that your loved one is being provided the highest quality of care while enabling you to maintain your own sense of balance and wellbeing.
