As a trusted home care provider in South Carolina, New Generations is one of the best providers of respite care. We offer caregiver support for individuals caring for both adults with special needs and those who are looking after senior loved ones, including those with dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Part of our mission is to provide a safe environment for individuals who need care while bringing total peace of mind to their caregivers. We know that you work tirelessly to keep your loved one happy, but caregiving is a demanding job. Rather than struggling alone, turn to New Generations for the care your loved one needs while you go to work, take care of other responsibilities, or simply take a little time for yourself.
What Is Respite Care?
Respite care provides caregivers with time off from looking after their loved one to look after themselves. They can go to work, run errands or just enjoy a day off to practice self-care or spend time with their other family members uninterrupted. When you have an ill, elderly or special needs loved one, caring for them is a full-time job. You might find yourself frequently stretched too thin and even suffering from guilt when you want to do something else that doesn’t involve them.
It’s only human to need a break, and respite care from New Generations allows you to refresh and recharge yourself. You don’t have to choose between caring for your loved one and living your life. Our respite care services let you take care of your health and needs so you are able to be the type of caregiver you want to be.

Avoid Caregiver Burnout and Depression
Caregivers who look after a loved one with a disability or medical needs are prone to experiencing burnout and depression. Burnout arises from exerting too much energy and attention to a specific job, and it can make it difficult for you to function normally in other areas of your life. You may feel chronically tired, forget to eat or overeat, have difficulty concentrating and struggle to meet responsibilities at work or in your family.
Depression and burnout are closely linked and forcing yourself to work harder when you really just need a break will ultimately only harm your mental health. Caregivers are people, too, and they need to have the same level of comfort that they provide their loved ones.
New Generations’ respite care services allow you to take care of yourself without compromising your loved one’s safety and well-being. Instead of wrestling with guilt or shame, you can take pride in the fact they’re being looked after while you tend to your own needs. It can give you the much-needed break to reconnect with yourself and pursue other things that are meaningful to you in life, like spending time with your children or getting to work uninterrupted.Enroll Today
