Trusted respite care for seniors in the Northern Twin Cities
Are you a family caregiver for a senior loved one living in the Blaine, MN area? Do you find yourself feeling overwhelmed, emotionally drained or physically exhausted? You are not alone. Providing care for a loved one can be an extremely gratifying experience and an opportunity for the family to grow closer or strengthen their relationships. Yet, the physical and emotional toll of providing attentive care can also be stressful and tiring—especially when balanced with a career or caring for children.
Importantly, when family caregivers are emotionally drained, they are likely less effective at playing this essential role. At Comfort Keepers,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 nursing home or assisted living facility outside the home. We give you a break from providing care so you can rest, recharge, or 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 MN helps support and maintain the primary caregiving relationship.
How Comfort Keepers Home Care Can Help
No longer do you need to hesitate or feel guilt scheduling time for yourself to relax or rest. Respite services give family caregivers the ability to leave their loved one's home for a few hours or even a few days, knowing the one you provide care for is in the capable, highly-trained hands of our home care professionals.
Respite care allows time for a family caregiver 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.
Schedule respite services 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 well-deserved vacation.
Not only will this rest period help you in providing more effective, attentive care, but also your loved one can benefit from interacting with our team of home care providers. We take the everyday caregiving tasks and turn them into opportunities to engage your senior loved one in meaningful conversation, games, light exercise, and other social activities.
