Expert respite care from in home caregivers near you in Petoskey, Traverse City, MI and surrounding areas
Experts in respite care agree that providing care for a loved one can be a satisfying and bonding encounter for anyone involved. Despite this, even in the most ideal of circumstances, the responsibility and ongoing routine can be incredibly draining when it must be balanced with the responsibilities of one's own life.
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. to learn more, call us at (231) 222-5376.
What is It?
Respite care, also known as "short break" care in some places, is designed to provide planned short-term breaks for families and other unpaid caregivers who require time away from the home or who simply need to take a break. Providing this type of care can assist in sustaining and maintaining the primary caregiving relationship.
How We Can Help
Respite services allow you to take a break from caring for your loved one for a few hours, a few days, or even a weekend, knowing that they are being cared for properly. We can do this anywhere in the Traverse City area. As a result, there is more time to:
- Complete chores you keep putting off.
- Visit stores and run errands around Traverse City.
- Take part in a support group meeting.
- Schedule and attend your regular health care visit, such as the doctor or dentist.
- Provide you with a well-deserved moment to recharge your batteries.
Are you planning a week-long trip out of the Traverse City area? While you are away, our in-home caregivers and private duty nursing staff will provide care for your loved one in their own home. The availability of our care services can be scheduled for as little as a couple of hours per week. You can also arrange for round-the-clock care so that you can take a longer break to attend a wedding out of town, transport a child to college, or go on an overdue vacation.
