source: Cleveland Clinic

year: 2019

summary/abstract:

If you are already suffering from stress and depression, seek medical attention. Stress and depression are treatable disorders. If you want to prevent burnout, consider turning to the following resources for help with your caregiving:

Home Health Services: 
These agencies provide home health aids and nurses for short-term care, if your loved one is acutely ill. Some agencies provide short-term respite care.

Adult Day Care: 
These programs offer a place for seniors to socialize, engage in a variety of activities, and receive needed medical care and other services.

Nursing Homes or Assisted Living Facilities: 
These institutions sometimes offer short-term respite stays to provide caregivers a break from their caregiving responsibilities.

Private Care Aides: 
These are professionals who specialize in assessing current needs and coordinating care and services.
