If you find yourself in a caring role or as the primary carer for a loved one, you will have joined the ranks of some 770,000 other Australians.
Many situations can lead to becoming the primary carer for your loved one. Some of the most common of these include taking care of people living with permanent or long-term injury or illness, Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, autism, and ageing and elderly relatives, for example.
The need for respite care can arise for a range of different reasons, some of which can be sudden and unplanned. At Care For Family, we understand the difficulties and challenges that caring for a loved one can entail, and how these challenges can accumulate over time.
We also understand that while it can be difficult to entrust someone else with supporting your loved one, all carers need to take time for themselves every now and again, to avoid burnout and to help ensure your loved one can remain at home. This is why our team of care professionals and nurses are not only compassionate, qualified, and experienced, but are also available at short notice to offer you support when you need it most.
Any time a primary carer finds themselves in need of a break, Care For Family is here to assist. You can rest assured that your loved one is in the trusted and expert care of one of our professional staff, any time you find the need.
