Even superheroes need breaks
You juggle it all – the errands, the house cleaning, cooking and medication – plus managing your own life. Perhaps you’ve got kids of your own, giving you two generations to care for. Maybe you live far away so helping an aging parent means putting your own life on hold. Either way, caring for a loved one is a lot of work. While it can be incredibly rewarding, after awhile you may find yourself in serious need of a break. We’re here to help.
As a caregiver, it’s easy to stay in hyperdrive, pouring all of your energy and time into the wellbeing of others. But ignoring your own needs can lead to stress, depression and exhaustion, and let’s face it: you’re no good to anyone if you’re burnt out.
Our caregivers are here to lift the burden of care off your shoulders whenever you need a break. Need a few hours, a day or an overnight to take some time for yourself? Give us a call. Our trusted and compassionate caregivers will help you find balance again, filling in gaps in care so you can get the rest you need and deserve.
We’ve got you covered
Often times caring for a loved one isn’t a sprint – it’s a marathon. Finding a manageable schedule that covers everyone’s needs – including your own – is essential to long term sustainability. At Sweatergang Companions, we’ll sit down with you to find a schedule that gives you the breaks you need while ensuring continuous care for your loved one. Whether they’re at home, in the hospital or in a retirement home, we’ve got you covered.
Time to Recharge
Taking some time for yourself helps you re-energize and relax, giving you more patience and compassion to deal with the challenges of caregiving. We can also help relieve you of mundane day-to-day tasks – allowing you to spend some quality time with your loved one.
“Sweatergang Companions started providing respite for my family in June 2014. My mom lives with me and once and a while I need a weekend away to pursue my own interests. Sweatergang Companions enables me to get away and know that mom is looked after. The service is flexible and the companions are wonderful and mom always enjoys their company.”B. Gauthier
