Respite Care in Shreveport, LA, and the Surrounding Areas

Respite care from Comfort Keepers of Shreveport, LA, gives you a break from providing care at home so you can rest, recharge, or focus on other important matters.

Caregiving can be a rewarding and bonding experience within a family, yet in even the best situations, and the responsibility and ongoing routine can be stressful and tiring—especially when balanced with a job or caring for children. 

When family caregivers are emotionally drained, they are likely less effective at providing critical care at home. Comfort Keepers of Shreveport, LA, can provide respite care or temporary relief to those who care for family members 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 care services provide planned short-term breaks for families and other unpaid caregivers who need time outside the home or to take a rest. Respite care helps support and maintain the primary caregiving relationship.

How Respite Care Can Help

Respite care gives you time to leave home for a few hours or even days, knowing the one you care for is in good hands. Whatever you need a break for, we'll be there for them so you can take care of them. This allows you to take care of errands and other duties/responsibilities while someone else provides senior care at home. We know how important it is for you to ensure your senior loved one is cared for and provided for, and we want to help. Our care at home 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.

To learn more about respite care available to you and your senior loved one, contact us or call (318) 934-0090 to schedule a free in-home consultation. One of our care coordinators would happily assist you with any questions.

Family Caregivers Can Rest Better with Respite Care in Shreveport, LA

Caring for a senior loved one should be a priority for family members, but doing it extensively can be quite stressful. The challenges that continue to progress with dementia, cancer, and other complications that may come with old age can take a physical, mental, and emotional toll on the person providing the care.

In many cases, caregivers don’t bother to take time off from their elderly care duties. They keep at it even when they lack the experience and training, which can result in a quality of care that might not be ideal for the senior. Most likely, the caregiver will get burned out and make him or herself prone to stress-related problems like medical or psychological issues, including but not limited to social isolation, fatigue, and lower body resistance. And if the caregiver is in that state, it’s quite difficult for him or her to care for the senior fully.

You Might Need Respite Care from Shreveport, LA

But caregivers don’t have to push themselves to the point of fatigue. They can balance caring for their loved one’s well-being and their own. That way, they can ensure the safety and comfort of their senior loved ones without having to sacrifice the other aspects of their life that are also important. But the question is: how?

The answer, of course, is respite care. This kind of caregiving service employs the short-term care of caregivers to replace family caregivers who need to take some time off their daily care routine. While respite care is intended to be temporary, the actual care period can vary from a few hours to a couple of weeks. They can, however, be regular to ensure that the caregiver will always have the chance to rest and recuperate.

By taking care of your health and well-being during respite care, you can recharge and prepare yourself for returning to caring for your loved one again. This means your senior loved one will get the best care they can get from you. So if you need to take some time off your caregiving responsibilities in Shreveport, LA, contact us or call (318) 934-0090 to get more information about our in-home care services and schedule a free in-home consultation.
