What is Respite Care?

Respite Care from Interim HealthCare of Worcester, MA means that your loved ones will be taken care of by professionals that you can trust.

Respite care provides breaks from the daily routine of caregiving. 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 away, residents and families in Worcester, Shrewsbury, Princeton, Douglas, Berlin, and throughout Worcester County can count on Interim HealthCare to provide the support that you need.

At Interim HealthCare, we understand the physical, mental and emotional demands of being a family caregiver. Giving so much of yourself can be overwhelming at times, caregiver burnout is very common. In order to provide the best care possible for your loved one, it is essential to take a break from care from time to time. That's why we provide Respite to family caregivers in the Worcester area and beyond.  When it matters most, count on us.  
 

We will be happy 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 to provide the following types of services:
 
  • 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
  • And much more

I want to express my appreciation and gratitude for your help with my Mom. She has grown very close to a couple of your care givers. Everyone is prompt and considerate of her needs. It’s comforting to know I have people who I can count on.
