Respite care provides family members breaks from the daily routine of care giving. It can relieve stress, restore energy and promote the necessary balance in one’s life. Whether it’s for a few hours or a long vacation, Interim can provide the support and relief needed.
We will often arrange for a free in-home evaluation to discuss the type and length of respite care needed, and a plan of service will be developed. There are a number of options for additional support.
Respite care can include:
- Personal Care (bathing, grooming, dressing)
- Light housekeeping (laundry, dishes, fresh linens)
- Meal preparation
- Errands outside the house (prescription pickup, dry cleaning)
- Transportation and companionship to/from appointments
