Are you looking forward to your upcoming holiday season, or does it have you a little down? If you’re serving as a caregiver to a loved one with memory loss, you may know this feeling all too well. Whether you know what to expect or have no idea how you’ll navigate the holiday season with your loved one, we can help make your holidays merry.
“The holiday season can be a stressful time for caregivers,” says Cheyanne Schaible, Community Relations Director at YourLife™ of Wildwood. “They may not have much time for shopping, they may not be able to host their traditional holiday meal and they may not know how to involve their loved one in the festivities. All of this can cause caregivers to become burnt out and even more stressed. Those with memory loss may be overwhelmed at the array of decorations and lights, the thought of holiday travel and putting up with the holiday hustle and bustle. This can cause them to wander, act out or become aggressive and agitated. The good news is, the holiday season can be made easier for both you and your loved one with respite care.”
What Is Respite Care?
Respite care is an ideal solution for caregivers who could use some extra time to themselves while still having peace of mind knowing that their loved one is in caring and capable hands of those who will care for their loved one just as they would, all while enjoying engaging experiences and exciting activities.
When Can It Be Used?
Whether you just want to spend time shopping, are traveling for the holidays or need a few days to enjoy time with your family, your loved one can enjoy our range of services and amenities, care and more while getting a preview of the lifestyle they could enjoy each day.
