Most parents and guardians can agree that caring for the life and well being of another person is tough work. Not only does it require strength, patience and resilience to be responsible for the life of another, but it also takes a strong commitment to continue this work. And however much love one can have for this dependent, there is no denying that this is a task which is both physically and mentally draining.

In return for the love and care that that has been provided, many people often take it upon themselves to care for their parents in their seniority, just as their parents did for them. But similar to the exhaustion that parents feel, these people may find themselves having difficulty keeping up with their own responsibilities along with the needs of their now elderly parents.

Here at A-1 Home Care, we understand these desires to care for our parents, but we also realize the significance of rest. Without taking a breather once in a while, one can start to harbor feelings of resentment toward their responsibilities, including caregiving. In order to prevent such a rift in relationships and alleviate exhaustion, we offer respite caregivers to provide temporary assistance with your caregiving duties and give you the time to recharge. In addition to Respite Care, we also offer  Post Surgery Care, Alzheimer’s CareDiabetes Care, Cancer Care, and Arthritis Care. With caregiver trained in these categories, we can offer relief to both you and your elderly loved ones.

The goal of hospice switches from curing the disease to providing comfort and reduce pain for the patient. Many patients with terminal illness suffers from chronic pain.
