How To Vacation When You're A Caregiver

It's summertime! 

That usually means travel time for families.  Vacations can can be difficult for those who are acting as primary caregivers for an aging loved one. Leaving a family member who requires daily help can feel impossible. As a result, many caregivers go years without a vacation, or breaks, from their caregiving duties.

How do you vacation when you're a caregiver?

The first option people generally turn to is to trade time with other family members to watch your mom or dad in your absence. Sometimes this option causes guilt because you feel like you are “inconveniencing” someone else. 

What if you don’t have family members to depend on?  A great option for the primary caregiver who wants to get away is to hire an in-home caregiving service.  For instance, SYNERGY HomeCare offers respite care. This means "to give rest" to the primary caregiver by filling in. This provides family caregivers with peace of mind that their loved one is being cared for by a trusted professional help while they are away.

How about taking your elderly loved one with you as you travel? This can be complicated, especially if it requires plane or train trips. SYNERGY HomeCare can provide you with the assistance of a caregiver to travel with you.

Summer is a time to get that much needed relaxation.  Getting help from an in-home care service can give you the downtime that you really need! Call us today at (405)254-3046.
