Being a carer for someone you love is a huge responsibility and understandably comes with feeling exhausted or overwhelmed. It can sometimes mean you also have to miss out on events or activities you enjoy.
Carers or family members are often reluctant to enquire about respite services because they feel as though they are not coping or are not doing enough to take care of their loved one.
KompleteCare understands the feeling and assures you that we know this is not the case. We encourage respite care because it’s essential for everyone to have the chance to recharge their batteries, do something for themselves or catch up on overdue tasks to enable them to be better and more focused when returning to their caring duties.
Respite services with KompleteCare allow you to have a break away from your responsibilities while knowing that your loved one will be taken care of just the way you would like them to be.
Respite care can be used on an emergency or casual basis or as a regular service, giving you the break you deserve. You may wish to use respite for a few hours for an appointment, work or event or a more extended period if you find yourself suddenly ill and incapable of caring for another, a holiday or weekend getaway.
With a disability, ill or injured client, there could be many reasons why they cannot leave home for alternative care.
KompleteCare respite can give you a welcome break you both need as well as encourage socialising and trusting others outside the family or home.
While you are away, our support workers offer a safe and comfortable setting for your loved one. Offer regular contact if required while performing a variety of care services from personal care, medical assistance, food preparation and transportation.
We certainly cannot replace you but will do our very best to be the perfect alternative for that special person in your life.
