Respite Care Offers Relief for Families

Many family caregivers take pride in the they provide to their loved ones and it’s simply a part of daily life. But the physical, mental and emotional demands of caring for a family member can be overwhelming at times. Care giving is a difficult job and very few people are equipped to do it alone. Getting help is essential for your health and maintaining your resilience is critical for your loved one.

Respite care provides breaks from the daily routine of care giving. It can relieve stress, restore energy and promote the necessary balance in your life. Whether it’s for a few hours or that well deserved vacation, you can count on us to provide the support and relief you need.

Planning Your Relief Types of Respite Care Services

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. Our Home Care Professionals can stay with your loved one for a few hours, a day, a week, or longer as needed.  Identifying a person’s requirements, preferences and interest is also part of the evaluation to create the right match. 

Types of Respite Care Services

There are a number of options for additional support.  These can include:

  • Personal Care (bathing, grooming, dressing)
  • Light housekeeping (laundry, dishes, fresh linens)
  • Meal Preparation
  • Shopping
  • Errands outside the house (prescription pickup, dry cleaning)
  • Transportation and companionship to/from appointments
