As a family caregiver, you can’t do it all. MDC Healthcare can step in and maintain your loved one’s comfort and quality of life while you take a much-needed break.
Respite care provides relief to primary caregivers. It’s natural to become mentally, physically, and emotionally exhausted when caring for an older adult or medically frail loved one suffering from chronic illness or injury. Respite caregiving is a short-term home care solution that can last anywhere from an afternoon to several weeks. These visits give you time to take care of personal matters and recuperate without sacrificing your loved one’s quality of care.

According to studies at Pew Research, nearly half of adults in their 40s and 50s have a parent age 65 or older and are either raising or financially supporting a child. If you’re an adult family caregiver looking after a senior or medically frail family member, it can be stressful splitting time among the responsibilities in your life. When you feel overwhelmed and torn between your personal life and your unpaid caregiving duties, it’s okay to seek outside help.
