Respite Care for Family Caregivers in Ann Arbor, MI & Surrounding Areas
Respite care gives you a break from providing care 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, 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 playing this critical role. Comfort Keepers Home Care of Ann Arbor, MI 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 services provide planned short-term breaks for family members 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.
Our caregivers will give you the time you need to leave the home for a few hours or even a few days, knowing the one you care for is in good hands. With extra help, you'll have time to:
- Take care of grocery shopping and other errands
- Visit with friends and family
- Attend a support group meeting
- Attend appointments like the doctor, dentist, or hair salon
- Give yourself a much-needed rest
Our respite services can be scheduled for as little as a few hours a week. Additionally, 24 hour home 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.
