Respite Care: The Perfect Vacation Solution
As the senior population continues to grow, families are beginning to understand and utilize respite care services more and more each year. While seniors may require a greater amount of attention as they get older, it is important for people to realize that caring for a senior does not mean life stops. It simply means daily routines and schedules need to be altered to meet the needs of the senior yet not overburden the family or the primary caregiver. This could also mean bringing in someone with experience in working with seniors with different needs when the caregiver simply wants to spend some time away from home. At Comfort Keepers, we boast a skilled and experienced staff to provide respite care services for families in need. Our staff will coordinate schedules with the primary caregiver for when they need to schedule vacation time from as short as a few hours to as long as a few weeks.
Comfort Keepers schedules an initial in-home intake nurse to conduct a free in-home consultation for each interested potential client. During the assessment, the in-home intake nurse observes the patient's interaction with others, familiarity with surroundings, and a host of other factors concerning their home life. This allows them to make critical judgment calls on the best way to introduce him- or herself into the patient's life and make a smooth transition into the home. After the assessment, the Comfort Keepers staff member will make recommendations tailored to the respite care recipients.
Our specially selected staff has been trained to provide quality, compassionate care for all seniors. Each member goes through our rigorous screening process to ensure the right people are looking after seniors in their homes. With 600 franchised offices in 6 countries, Comfort Keepers continues to build a tradition of global quality senior care.
