In-Home Respite Care for the elderly
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 balancing things 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® 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. Our respite care services is a boon for caregivers.
What is Respite Care?
In general, Dementia is a decline in mental ability, such as memory loss or an inability to complete familiar tasks. It is serious enough to interfere with a person’s daily life. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of Dementia, accounting for 50 to 80 percent of cases. Our services help patients undergoing Dementia and Alzheimer’s treatment by focusing on their remaining abilities and strengths, while assisting with tasks that have become difficult for the client to perform.
How Comfort Keepers 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.
