Our respite service may be in the form of an outreach service er’s home or a supported holiday/break away from the home environment, aimed at offering the main carer a much needed break from their caring role. We understand the needs of family carers and we know how to provide the support they need to help them continue effectively in their caring role.
In most cases respite care services are planned ahead but at Bluebird Care we pride ourselves in being able to respond quickly to emergencies such as where an informal carer is suddenly taken ill or unable to perform their caring role temporarily for whatever reason.
Benefits of Physical Activity
Engaging in a healthy active lifestyle helps stimulate the brain and assists in staying independent. It can also be immensely enjoyable.
Some of the specific benefits of physical activity are:
- Reducing the risk of developing chronic diseases;
- Aids in the management of active problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity and high cholesterol;
- Improves the ability to function and stay independent in cases where people have lung disease or arthritis;
- Reduces symptoms of depression and pain; and
- Improves balance and prevents falls.
We encourage and support our customers to take part in simple, healthy activities, which may include something as basic as walking or dancing. Of course, participation in any activity will depend on the customer’s choice and abilities. A member of our team will discuss your preferences with you as part of your tailored homecare and support plan.
