Respite Care in Cold Spring, KY and Surrounding Areas
Comfort Keepers respite care services offer family caregivers in the Cold Spring, KY area a well-deserved break from caregiving.
Caregiving can be a truly rewarding experience within a family, yet, in even the best situations, the added responsibility and ongoing routine can become increasingly stress-inducing and tiring—especially when balanced with a job or caring for one's own children.
When family caregivers are emotionally drained and their mental well-being is compromised, they are likely less effective at playing a critical role in their caregiving. That's where Comfort Keepers caregivers come in. Our team can provide respite care, or temporary relief, to those who care for family members so that these family caregivers can recharge and focus on other important matters.
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.
How Comfort Keepers Can Help
Respite care services give you 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
- run errands.
- catch up on your shopping.
- attend a support group meeting.
- visit doctor or dentist for routine care.
- give yourself a much-needed rest.
Comfort Keepers respite services can be scheduled for as little as a few hours a week. But, should you want additional care, around-the-clock care can be arranged so you can take a longer break to visit a child at college, attend an out of town wedding or go on a much-needed vacation.
