Luxcare Senior Care
115-1773 Feltham Rd Victoria, BC, V8N 6E8
Becoming a caregiver for your loved one is not always a part of the plan. Sometimes, it’s a parent; other times, it’s a partner who can ultimately end up requiring a level of care beyond the abilities of even the most organized and competent people. Being a family caregiver can consume your energy and take up a large portion of your time. Furthermore, this can put all your other responsibilities on the back bench. Caring for loved ones in need can be very demanding, both physically and emotionally.
This is where respite care enters the picture. Respite care is when a professional caregiver must take over your loved ones’ everyday care needs from a family member or another hired professional. Luxcare Senior Care will provide one of our respite care professionals for the time you choose so you can take a break while we care for your loved one. We offer services that cover everything from a few hours a day to 24/7 care, delivering flexible, customized personal care plans that fit your schedule. With Luxcare, we can guarantee you will be covered when the time comes. In addition to Victoria, our respite care is available in Oak Bay, North Saanich, James Bay, Esquimalt & Langford.
Throughout our lives, relationships have sustained us. They are required to survive; this is especially true in our most challenging moments when we lose faith in our ability to maintain them. This can happen when other heavy responsibilities, such as caregiving, begin to occupy our minds and our time. Respite care provides a much-needed rest, which is exceptionally beneficial to family caregivers.
Moreover, providing ongoing long-term care can be pretty stressful, which has been linked to an increase in mental and physical health risks. These are just a few concerns that must be taken into account when you decide whether or not you could benefit from short-term quality respite care. Taking a break from long-term care lets people put things back into perspective and gives them time to focus on those vital relationships.
We believe one of the most significant issues facing family caregivers is they tend to put too much pressure on themselves with little to no support, leading to a burnout situation. At this point, they may become isolated as they sometimes allow their relationships to become a second priority as they face the daunting task of caring for a senior loved one. Meeting friends and family and getting out for fresh air could be just what you need.
