Respite Care Allows You to Rest, Recharge, and Focus on Yourself
Comfort Keepers Provides Compassionate Respite Care in Vero Beach, FL
Providing care for your senior loved one may be a very gratifying experience, but being a full-time caregiver can be difficult, even in the best circumstances. Compassion fatigue can arise when caregivers balance family caregiving with a successful profession and caring for their children. Because of this, family caregivers are likely to become less effective in all of their duties. Comfort Keepers recognizes that this occurs, which is why we provide respite care. This end-of-life care gives temporary relief to those who care for family members who would otherwise have to reside in a nursing home or assisted living facility away from home and their loved ones.
What is Respite Care?
Respite Care is a temporary care service (also known as "short break" care in some countries). Our caregivers offer organized short-term in-home care for families and other unpaid familial caregivers who need time away from their loved ones' homes or rest. The long-term care provided by Comfort Keepers supports and maintains the primary caregiver connection even though we are not providing 24-hour care.
How Can Respite Care Help My Family in Vero Beach, FL?
Respite Care services allow you or the primary family caregiver to step away from the home and responsibilities for a few hours or days. You will have peace of mind knowing that the senior you care for is in good hands while you rest and recover. This frees up time for you to:
- take care of the errands you never seem to have time for.
- catch up on your shopping.
- attend a support group meeting.
- visit a doctor or dentist for routine care.
- give yourself a much-needed rest.
Comfort Keeper's respite services are flexible enough to meet your needs, whether you need just a few hours of respite care a week or around-the-clock supervision. You can take a vacation, go to a wedding out of town, take your children to a sporting event, or run errands. Short breaks allow you to recharge and continue the rewarding experience of providing elder care for your senior loved one.
