Caring for a loved one after she gives birth is one of the most generous and caring things you can do. But what do you do when you need a break? The in-home respite care program from Labor Of Love Maternity Solutions® is here to help.
Helping a new mother recover from a baby delivery is a rewarding, yet demanding role. To provide the best possible care, you need to be sure you are also taking good care of yourself. Attending to your own diet, incorporating exercise, taking breaks, and looking after your emotional well-being is essential. Many husbands and mother-in-laws find it difficult to spend time focusing on their own needs, when their loved one is the focus of their attention. Respite care allows you to disengage for a few hours or a few days to rest and recharge.
How Respite Care Helps
At Labor Of Love, our in-home care program matches your loved one with one of our friendly and compassionate maternity caregivers. Caregivers can visit for a few hours a day or several times a week to provide family caregivers with the opportunity to run errands, go to work, take a vacation, or simply rest and recharge.
When our caregivers visit, they will quickly put your loved one at ease. While engaging in friendly conversation, caregivers can also provide assistance with a wide variety of home care needs. Our caregivers can help your loved one with dressing and bathing, infant care, and other personal care needs. They can also help around the house performing simple chores and preparing healthy meals. The engaged care we provide makes it easy for your loved one to look forward to these visits and can help relieve the anxiety or guilt you may feel by stepping away for a few hours.
How to Get Started with In-Home Care
If you’ve been feeling burnt out or are finding yourself feeling frustrated with your caregiver role, now is a good time to consider in-home care. Taking care of yourself is vitally important. Respite care provides the break you need to rest and regroup.
Getting started is easy. Simply get in touch with one of our local home care offices. We can match your loved one with a caregiver who can provide the assistance they need. Respite care is offered on an hourly basis so you can establish the frequency and scope of care that best meets your needs. Because our home care services are flexible, should your loved one require more engaged care in the future, we can expand our role to include companion care, personal care, or even care for your baby.
