Ask for Respite Care

If you're caring for someone else, ask for respite care. Respite care is short-term home health care that gives the primary caregiver a short break. This can be a few hours or an overnight stay in the hospital or nursing facility. While respite care is not meant to replace long-term care, it can help you avoid exhaustion and burnout as well as ensure your loved one gets quality medical attention while receiving more time with friends and family members.

Ask your doctor if they have any recommendations on caregivers who provide in-home assistance. If they don't have any suggestions, ask around among friends and family members; often people know of trusted professionals whom they've worked with before (or even used themselves). You may also want to check with local social services agencies that provide subsidized services like this one day at a time so there's no contract involvedand rates are usually lower than those offered by private companies as well.

A sauna session will allow you to sweat out toxins from your body as well as promote cardiovascular health by increasing blood flow throughout the body.
