At Loving Home Care Services, we carry a strong focus on Relationship-Based Home Care.
Relationship-Based Home Care is our type of care organized around the needs of the individual and his or her family, rather than around the completion of a predefined set of tasks. Instead of focusing only on acute needs, Relationship-Based Home Care takes a holistic approach.
What Is Relationship-Based Home Care?
- Is person-centred, focusing on the physical and emotional need of the individual.
- Is highly personalized, organized around the needs of the individual and their family.
- Supports families and family caregivers in their relationship with that person receiving care.
- Enables coordination across the entire care team, which encompasses all of those engaged in a person’s care including family caregivers and health care providers.
- Recognizes that the needs of individual continuously evolve.
- Is outcomes-based, taking a preventative approach to allow for the highest quality of life and independence for as long as possible.
- Integrating Relationship-Based Home Care as the preferred option will empower the delivery on the promise of high-quality care for the individual.
This type of care focuses on benefits such as promoting independence, ensuring physical and emotional well-being, and supporting the continuous monitoring and evaluation of care needs over time.
With Relationship-Based Home Care, our Case Manager and staff becomes familiar with the individual’s entire care team including his or her family members, physicians, pharmacists, and others. A caring relationship that puts the individual, rather than the checklist, at the centre of the care plan supports better coordination of care and navigation of their health and the health care system.
Many families take great comfort in providing care to their loved ones so that they can remain at home. But the physical, emotional and potential income loss burdens for family caregivers can be overwhelming without any support, such as respite. The truth is, when family caregivers are looking after their loved one who’s sick, frail, or disabled, it really is a 24/7 job with almost no breaks. In fact, in 2016, 5.5 million Canadian’s took care of their loved ones.
Respite Care allows the family caregiver to take a short or long-term break to recharge their own batteries, ultimately alleviating stress, and improving one own’s physical, emotional and mental well-being.
How Long Does It Last?
Family caregivers take breaks as long or short as they need them to be from just a few hours a day, a full day, a couple of days of the week, or up to even a few weeks at a time. They take this time to rest and relax, catch up on personal appointments and errands, work, exercise, or even go on a vacation.
Who Needs Respite Care?
If your loved one is severely ill, frail, or is disabled, chances are you need a bit of a break.
You may need Respite Care if you’re taking care of a loved one that;
- Suffered a brain injury
- Suffered a stroke
- Suffered a debilitating fall or accident
- Underwent major surgery
- Has Alzheimer’s disease or dementia
- Has cancer
- Other medical conditions
What Happens During Respite Care?
Respite Care Staff provide support to family caregivers by taking over their responsibilities when they need rest, such as;
- Hygiene Maintenance
- Mobility Assistance
- Laundry & Linens
- Home Safety Maintenance
- Appointments & Errands Assistance
It is important to remember you should never feel guilty for wanting a break. Stepping away for a few hours or even a couple days here and there to care for yourself will make you a better and healthier family caregiver. Hiring a professional Respite Care Provider such as Loving Home Care Services can help support you while allowing your loved one to be cared for in a familiar environment, comfortable surroundings, and in their daily routine.
