Being a caregiver for a loved one can be very rewarding, providing a strong sense of purpose in helping others live a rich and fulfilling life. But caregiving can also leave little time for life’s other responsibilities like caring for home and family, tending to a job, or just taking a breather with some time off. Fair Oaks Health Care Center can help! Respite care is a short-term stay in our facility with the comforts of home including a private, furnished living space, 24-hour care, amenities like cable TV and internet, access to a variety of daily activities, plus delicious meals with homemade desserts. In addition to helping residents with activities of daily living, we also offer rehab therapy and skilled nursing to provide all the care your loved one needs.
It’s normal to feel some reluctance or even guilt when taking time for yourself, but caregiver burnout is a real problem that affects real people. In order to be the best caregiver you can be, it’s important to take time away and take a break from the demands of caregiving. We offer varying lengths of stay for respite care so you can take a breather, take a vacation, or spend time meeting life’s other demands. You’re important, too, and providing the best care to your loved one requires that you be your best self.
