Respite Care

Respite Care Information

Many family members provide basic care for aging family themselves. Providing such care, however, poses a number of problems for family caregivers, who can eventually experience mental and physical exhaustion after extended caregiving. Respite Care allows family caregivers a break to attend to other life necessities like personal appointments or alone time. While a family caregiver is away, a respite caregiver can temporarily see to the daily concerns of an elderly person.

Below is a collection of articles and resources created by Comfort Keepers to provide information about Respite Care and related topics.

The Value of Respite Care for Family Caregivers and Seniors

Respite care — provided by a professional caregiver or relative or friend — offers primary caregivers temporary relief from caregiving responsibilities, a chance to rest and recharge.


What is Respite Care?

Respite care offers assistance to those families who are in need of support to help care for an elderly loved one.


When It Is Time to Consider Respite Care

Respite care is not self-indulgent. It’s a necessity. Caring for an older or ill family member can be hugely rewarding and bring you closer − but being consumed by it will drain you physically and emotionally, and eventually cause burnout.

That's how we treat every person in our care. Our caregivers have a passion for
what they do, and are carefully selected and trained to meet your unique needs.
