Perhaps you or a loved one need rest and recovery after an accident, illness, or surgery? line¶ Caregiving can be highly demanding and stressful, and no one is equipped or expected to do it all without some help. It takes strength to reach out for help before your own health and well-being is in serious jeopardy as a result of stressful circumstances faced every day. Utilizing respite care before you become exhausted, isolated, and overwhelmed is incredibly important. line¶ Respite care offers relief and renewal and can restore a sense of balance to the lives of caregivers and has many benefits for both you and your loved one. You can enjoy spending time with friends or family, tackle that to-do list of errands or go shopping, focus on some self-care like going to a medical appointment or getting your hair done, and make sure to take some time to relax and unwind. Your loved one will get a chance to meet new people and take part in interesting activities, relax in a comfortable home away from home, and enjoy knowing that you are taking some time for yourself. line¶ Perry Lutheran Homes offers respite care in safe, caring, and professional environments with highly trained and compassionate staff. Whether you or your loved one is recovering from a surgery, fall or illness, in need of a little help, a lot of help, or dementia-specific help for a few days or a few weeks, we're here for you. line¶ Respite care at Spring Valley Retirement Campus is designed for lighter care needs or post-surgery, accident and/or illness.
