Respite Care Provides a Much-Needed Break

Respite care from Comfort Keepers® can provide a valuable break for families who are the primary caregivers for a senior loved one. While it can certainly be a privilege and joy to care for an elderly parent or loved one, this can become very time-consuming and stressful on the entire family. Through respite care services from Comfort Keepers, families can take some valuable time off from senior care.

Respite care is temporary in-home senior care. This could be from a relative or close friend or through a senior care service such as Comfort Keepers. This care gives the primary caregiver a break, giving them the opportunity to rest and reenergize.

Respite care can take many forms. A Comfort Keeper can stop by the house for regular bath visits or just for companionship care, giving the family a few hours to:

  • Run errands
  • Pay bills
  • Exercise
  • Go grocery shopping
  • Or even just to take a nap

Additionally, many families take advantage of respite care services when they are going on vacation. Comfort Keepers caregivers can provide the highest-quality care to the senior while the family is out of town. This can include temporary 24/7 live-in care. The family can have peace of mind throughout their vacation, knowing that their elderly loved one is in good hands: those of the friendly, caring and compassionate Comfort Keepers. During the vacation, the family can rest, relax and reenergize, ready to resume full-time senior care when they return home.

Comfort Keepers is a professional and compassionate senior care service of over 500 independently-owned and operated franchisee locations. Comfort Keepers caregivers provide the highest-possible quality in-home care, allowing seniors to remain where they are most comfortable: living independently in the safety, comfort and familiarity of their own homes.

Each Comfort Keepers caregiver is thoroughly screened to make sure they have what it takes to be a Comfort Keeper. This screening process includes rigorous local and federal background checks, a clean driving record and multiple interviews which determine if the potential caregiver is naturally gifted with compassion, respect and caring for others.

These caregivers visit seniors in their own homes, assisting them with everything from personal and hygiene care to companionship care and transportation services, helping each senior client live happy and healthy lives in their own homes.
