Home Caregiver Help: Respite Care Services From Overland Park, KS
If you are a home caregiver, we can give you a break so you can rest, recharge, or focus on other important matters through our respite care
Taking on the role of a home caregiver can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience within a family, yet in even the best situations, the responsibility and ongoing routine can be stressful and tiring—especially when balanced with a job or caring for children. When family members are emotionally drained, they are likely to be less effective at playing this critical role. Comfort Keepers of Overland Park, KS can provide respite care or temporary relief to those who care for the family who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home.
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 services help to support and maintain the primary caregiving relationship.
How We Can Help
Respite care services give those acting as a home caregiver time to leave the home for a few hours or even a few days, knowing the one you care for is in good hands. This creates time 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 Keepers' respite care 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 taking on home caregiver tasks and are need of a break, please contact us online or call us anytime at (913) 210-0631.
