Caring for an older adult or a person with disabilities can be a full-time job, leaving little to no time for personal activities. Did you know that more than 53 million adults in the U.S. provide unpaid care to someone over the age of 50? If you are the caregiver for a loved one, you know how challenging it can be to balance caregiving responsibilities with your own needs. That’s where respite care comes in.
Respite care provides short-term relief for primary caregivers. It can be arranged for just an afternoon or for several days or weeks. During this time, respite caregivers come to your home and provide companionship for your loved one while you take a break. This can be a great way to recharge yourself.
When family caregivers are emotionally drained, they aren’t able to provide the best possible care to their loved one. Comfort Keepers can provide relief. Our caregivers take over your caregiving responsibilities so that you can take a much-needed rest. Respite care services give you time to leave home for a few hours or even a few days, knowing the one you care for is in good hands.
Respite care can also benefit the person receiving care. Your loved one will have an opportunity to socialize and interact with others, which helps support their mental and emotional health. Our care plans can be customized to meet the needs of your loved one and is a great way to ensure that your loved one stays on the schedule that they are accustomed to.
Comfort Keepers' respite services can be scheduled for as little as a few hours a week. Additionally, around-the-clock care can be arranged so you can take a longer break to attend a wedding out of town, take a child to college, or go on a much-needed vacation. If you are considering respite care for your loved one, contact Comfort Keepers of Fort Myers for more information.
