Respite Care From Dedicated In Home Caregivers in Traverse City & Petoskey, MI
Expert respite care and in home caregivers near you
Respite care experts agree that 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 caretakers are emotionally drained, they are often less effective at playing this critical role. Our in home caregivers 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 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 We Can Help
Respite services give you time to leave the home for a few hours, days, or even a weekend 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 doctor or dentist for routine care.
- Give yourself a much-needed rest.
