As a leading adult day care facility in South Carolina, New Generations is also 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.
Why Choose New Generations’ Respite Care Services?
New Generations specializes in both adult day care and home care services. For individuals who are not able to visit our facility, we send highly compassionate, well-trained staff members to your home to look after your loved one while you go to work or attend to other responsibilities. All of our home care aides are extensively trained and undergo continual evaluation to ensure they are able to provide only the highest level of care and support.
Our Home Care Services Include:
- Assistance with bathing, grooming & dressing
- Personal hygiene assistance
- Monitoring medical health and reporting to a nurse supervisor
- Light meal preparation and feeding
- Mobility assistance
- Accompanying clients to medical appointments
- Help with grocery shopping and errands
- Conversation and companionship
Adult day care gives seniors and special needs individuals a safe, secure place to go and socialize. New Generations provides an environment that respects your loved one’s abilities, preferences and needs.
Benefits of Our Part & Full Time Adult Day Care Include:
- Crafts and fun activities
- Daily devotions
- Field trips and outdoor activities
- Two nutritional, FDA-approved meals and snacks
- Medication management
- Specialized care for seniors and particular special needs conditions, including Down Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Asperger Syndrome
At New Generations, attendees are given the opportunity to meet others, participate in fun, stimulating activities and fill their day with a new sense of wonder and purpose. Many seniors and adults with special needs become isolated if they are solely taken care of by a caregiver at home. At New Generations, we’ve structured our facilities to accommodate their needs so they are free to enjoy each day to the fullest.
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.
