Temporary Relief Care: Short Term Care

When a loved one is in need of care and support, friends and family members are happy to take on the role of caregiver. Families want the best for the people they cherish, so they readily commit themselves to provide all-around support for their loved ones. Although caring for the people important to you is a rewarding experience, it can also become overwhelming.

Catering to someone’s needs while managing other personal commitments is a lot of responsibility. Juggling everything at once can leave you exhausted and emotionally stressed. When you feel like you need some time for yourself, temporary relief services like short term care in Calgary can give you the chance to take that much-deserved break.

Why getting help is important

We understand how challenging it gets when you’re the primary carer for your loved one. You’re responsible for providing day-to-day support while at the same time handling other equally demanding commitments. When things are getting too much to manage, there’s nothing wrong with needing to take a break. After all, before you can provide optimal care for others, you also need to consider your own health and well-being.

Having no time for yourself can leave you feeling tired, moody, stressed and even burned out. In times like these, seeking the help of professional support workers is essential in maintaining a well-balanced lifestyle.

Taking care of yourself

Care Within Reach recognizes that you want the best for your loved ones and that you prioritize their happiness, comfort, health, and safety. However, doing so does not have to come at the expense of your own health and needs. Getting the help of health care aides provides you with extra support so you can have more time to focus on your well being.

Wanting some time for yourself is not selfish. In reality, it’s even beneficial to your role as a care provider. Having time to relax, de-stress, and focus on your own needs, even for just a few hours a week, can help you feel refreshed and re-energized. If you’re in your best health, both physically and mentally, you can take better care of the person you cherish.

Going on Vacation

Taking care of your loved one is an everyday commitment with no days off. For families who are responsible for an elderly, ill, or disabled loved one, there’s usually no time to spare on traveling and going on short vacations. However, with the help of health care aides, you no longer have to postpone or deny yourself from taking leisure breaks. 

Vacations are a great way to reduce stress, improve mental health, and get your motivation back. Going on trips with friends and family also improves your relationship with them. Whether you need a few days off to travel for work, emergency purposes, to visit family, or to relax, you can depend on our temporary relief care services for support.

Catering to other responsibilities

Services like short term care in Calgary give family members the chance to focus on other aspects of their life. You can rely on health care aides to take over your caregiving duties while you pick your kids up from school, manage your business, go to a dentist appointment, and so much more. 

With the extra time to spare, you can be more productive in handling different tasks and actively work on your other responsibilities. Additionally, this is also an opportunity to pursue your hobbies and interests once again.

Professional Assistance

Our health care aides are experienced, skilled and have undergone training for giving proper support and care to clients. Families who get the help of a trusted professional can have peace of mind and assurance that their loved one is in safe hands. Plus, our care aides can offer tips and insights from a professional’s perspective, which can help improve your care routine and how you support your loved one.
