Respite Care For Dementia

Caregiving for a person with dementia is a difficult responsibility, and can sometimes lead to burnout as well. The nature of dementia is such that the individual will eventually need round-the-clock care and assistance. This can take a severe toll on a caregiver’s physical and mental health. Caregiver burnout is also associated with the incidence of mental health disorders like depression and anxiety.

Respite care allows caregivers to take a break from caring for their loved ones while the person with dementia continues to receive care in a secure setting. Respite programs can help you support and develop your abilities to care for others. At Cadabams, we combine our professional expertise and infrastructure to provide the best recovery experience possible.

What is the respite care program at Cadabams?

Dementia is a severe and chronic disorder. It is also progressive in nature, indicating that the disability caused by the disorder will only get worse as time progresses. In such cases, close family members and friends become the caregivers for the person. The duties of caregiving are difficult and can cause a person severe stress. This can eventually lead to caregiver burnout as well. 

Respite Care for Dementia is a program that provides relief for caregivers of individuals with dementia. During this period, the individual will still be under expert care and supervision at our rehabilitation centre, while the caregivers are able to get some respite from their duties of caregiving.

What does the program involve?

The program involves multiple different steps that aid recovery. These include:

  • The process begins with a consultation with our expert mental health professional. They advise the best possible treatment course for the individual and help the families understand the nature of the disorder and help them make the necessary adaptations for the individual.

  • Once the program begins, the individual undergoes effective and intensive rehabilitation at our fully equipped rehabilitation centres. The rehabilitation program is aimed to improve the quality of life of an individual and ensure that they attain better independence in their activities of daily living.

  • The program helps the families gain some respite from the duties of caregiving. It also helps them adapt to the different needs of the individual so that they can take better care of them once they are back home.

How does this program ensure effective and sustainable recovery?

  • The program helps the caregivers get a period of respite from the duties of caregiving so that they can care for themselves.

  • It ensures that the person themselves is undergoing rehabilitation while their caregivers are relieved of the caregiving responsibilities for a while.

  • It helps improve the quality of life of all stakeholders in the recovery process.

  • It helps the individual regain independence in their daily activities and more.

Cadabams has helped us so much. Our grandmother was fighting dementia, and she was suffering a lot. Cadabams Rehabilitation helped her. The doctors there were very helpful and caring. They regularly kept in touch with us to give an updated about her.

My father was fighting dementia, and it was difficult to manage it at home. We searched for support for him, and we found Cadabams. They helped us immensely, they cared for him, and he seems so happy there. Thank you Cadabams.

  • Most important step towards recovering from psychiatric illnesses.

IP Care

  • Focuses on immediate relieving of symptoms in case of emergencies
