Respite Care at Home in Durango, CO & Surrounding Areas
Rest, recharge, or focus on other important matters with respite care at home in Durango, CO
Respite care is a temporary relief to those who care for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a nursing home or assisted living facility outside the home.
At Comfort Keepers of Durango, CO we fully understand that caregiving can be an extremely rewarding experience and an opportunity to strengthen bonds within a family. Yet we also know that in even the best scenarios, the responsibilities and ongoing routine can be stressful and tiring—especially when balanced with a job or caring for children.
Are you a family caregiver for a loved one? Could you benefit from taking a break from providing care, even for just a couple of hours? Respite care at home is a great solution.
When family caregivers are emotionally drained, they are likely less effective at providing the attentive care their loved one deserves.
What is Respite Care?
Known in some countries as “short break” care, respite services provide planned short-term breaks for families and other unpaid caregivers who need time outside the home or to simply take a rest. Respite care helps support and maintain the primary caregiving relationship.
