There are many dedicated family caregivers that just need a break sometimes. Being a fulltime caregiver for a family member can be tiring and stressful. By providing respite services to these family caregivers, we can help make their jobs a little easier.
Carlsbad, Ca (PRWEB) June 18, 2015
Golden Care, a non-medical in-home senior care agency in Carlsbad, California, recently entered into a partnership with Southern Caregiver Resource Center (SCRC), a non-profit organization dedicated to helping families throughout San Diego County who are caring for adults with chronic and disabling conditions.
Golden Care has contracted with SCRC to provide respite services for the family caregivers that SCRC supports. This allows SCRC to utilize Golden Care’s professional caregivers to provide temporary assistance to individuals caring for their elderly family members on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, depending on the needs of the particular family. Respite services provided through SCRC are free of charge to the family caregivers.
Said Porsha Vogt, Owner of Golden Care, “There are many wonderful and dedicated family caregivers out there that just need a break sometimes. Being a fulltime caregiver for a family member can be tiring and stressful. Caregivers, like anyone else, need time to themselves to rest and recharge, or to simply run errands, without having to worry about leaving their loved one unassisted at home. By providing respite services to these family caregivers, we can help make their jobs a little easier.”
“We feel very strongly about the great work SCRC is doing throughout San Diego and are honored to be affiliated with them,” continued Ms. Vogt. “They are providing much needed services and resources to family caregivers throughout San Diego County. We look forward to working with them for many years.”
Out of the approximate 430 senior care agencies in San Diego County, SCRC has only contracted with eight agencies to provide respite services for their organization, of which Golden Care is one.
