Respite Care Services Offered in Springfield, IL
Comfort Keepers Respite Care offers a flexible solution that is both effective and affordable. Comfort Keepers’ respite home care services provide temporary support whenever and however you need it. As a result, you’ll have time to recuperate, run errands, or even just go have fun. Not only will your emotional health benefit from respite care assistance, but your overall relationship with your elderly or disabled loved one can improve as well.
When we have loved ones who need a little extra help at home, the first impulse is to offer that help ourselves. Caring for senior, sick, or disabled family members can be a rewarding experience, but it's also a stressful, demanding responsibility. This is particularly true if you’re raising a family or juggling a full-time job − or, all too often, both!
It’s important for every caregiver to balance both the needs of the individual and their own. If this delicate dance is not performed correctly, it’s all too easy for a caregiver to “burn out,” leading to lack of sleep, imbalance in lifestyle, or overall decreased happiness.
With Comfort Keepers, you can request temporary help for as much, or as little, time as you need. Your schedule is already complicated, so we can have a respite caregiver available when you need one. What’s more, our team will readily share our years of experience working with families just like yours, helping you to avoid common pitfalls that accompany certain conditions or situations.

How Comfort Keepers Can Help With Dementia and Alzheimer's Care
Our caregivers are trained in Dementia/Alzheimer’s Care and are also trained to implement Comfort Keepers' unique Interactive Caregiving™ system. With Interactive Caregiving, the Alzheimer's disease and dementia care provider will get to know the senior on a personal level, learning about likes, dislikes and even past events in the senior's life. While developing a relationship with the senior, the caregiver can plan activities that could help the senior simulate mental or physical activities that have been shown to create more lucid thought. The senior and care provider can listen to music together from the senior's favorite era, read an old favorite book or even do memory exercises like looking through family photos or discussing current events.
In addition to companionship, our caregivers provide additional services to help clients with dementia and Alzheimer’s lead healthy lives. Our team can assist with food prep, light house cleaning, transportation, and errands.
End of Life Senior Care Services
When a family member is diagnosed with limited life expectancy, he or she often has a strong desire to spend the final days in the comfort of home. This is known as End of Life Care. However, caring for a loved one at the end of life can be emotionally challenging and physically exhausting.
Comfort Keepers® can support you and your loved one by working with a hospice agency or medical provider to fully meet the family’s care needs. We will help care for your loved one, as well as assist around the house and provide the family with emotional and moral support. The end of one’s life is an upsetting time, but Comfort Keepers’ services can lessen stress for everyone involved.
Transitioning Home After Hospitalization With Comfort Keers
The time immediately following release from the hospital (also known as the postoperative period) is a critical phase of the recovery process. This is where Transitioning Care is most beneficial. Studies show a lack of proper care and support after a surgery can lead to slower recuperation. In fact, there is a substantial risk of readmission due to serious complications, such as infection, blood clots, or reopening an incision. This is why it is important to have a thorough postoperative care plan in place before transitioning home.
Family and friends may be eager to help their loved one recovery after a surgery. However, most lack the proper training to provide the necessary postoperative home care. What’s more, caretaking for family members who recently received surgery is both labor-intensive and time-consuming.
