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. Comfort Keepers Home Care offers quality care services including part-time care. Respite care will give both a senior and their primary family caregiver a break from each other.

Everyone needs a break, and Comfort Keepers recognizes that. This type of senior care can be very important for both you and your senior loved one, as it will give you time for yourself to become a better caregiver.
How Respite Care Can Help
Respite care services give you time to leave the home for a few hours or even a few days, 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.
Comfort Keepers respite 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.
