If an older adult in your family requires extensive care each day, providing it can be both time-consuming and stressful for everyone in the family. However, the brunt of this often falls on the primary caregiver. Fortunately, Wickshire Senior Living Oklahoma City offers respite care to members of our community. With this service, your loved one receives professional care from our compassionate, capable team members for a period of fourteen days or more. This service can be an excellent transition from home health care services to our assisted living community. For more information about short-term senior care services, please contact Wickshire Senior Living Oklahoma City at (405) 691-6555 today.

What You Should Know About Respite Care

respite careWhen a caregiver chooses respite care services, they shift their caregiving duties to a person they trust, such as a relative, friend, or professional. In such cases, they get temporary relief from their responsibilities, allowing them to complete other duties, go on a vacation, or practice necessary self-care. It gives the caregiver a well-deserved break they need to function at their best.

Many of our community members reach out to our team to get respite for about two weeks. Our team can work around the schedule of the customer, and the caregiver can rest assured that their loved one will get the best care possible. Our respite services also allow your loved one to try out our community to see if it’s a good fit for them.

At Wickshire Senior Living Oklahoma City, we provide support for your loved one with customized senior services and flexible scheduling. We strive to assist older adults to live comfortably and safely alongside people who care for them. We’ll also fill their days in our care with a range of activities that engage them intellectually, emotionally, and physically.

Why Do You Need Short-Term Services?

While caring for someone you love is a gratifying task, it also comes with unique challenges. It’s vital to know that being a primary caregiver brings stress, loss, and physical strain. It’s essential for you to practice self-care and take breaks to make sure you’re able to continue to care for your loved one in the long run. If you don’t meet your needs or take a break every so often, you risk your mental and physical health, which can also endanger your loved one.

Finding respite care gives you a support network you can rely on when the stress feels overwhelming. It also allows you to rekindle the pride and happiness they felt when they first began caring for their loved one or parent.

When you get respite services at Wickshire Senior Living Oklahoma City, we work with your family to help you care for your loved one and yourself. Our compassionate professionals are excited to care for older adults. We’ll build meaningful connections with you and your family as we provide the support and assistance necessary.
