Care You & Your Family Deserve
Respite Care for Seniors in Manhattan & Surrounding Areas
Caregiving for someone you love can be a rewarding experience for family and friends of seniors, yet in even the best situations, the responsibility and ongoing routine can be stressful and tiring—especially when trying to balance a full-time job and caring for children. This can lead to exhaustion and burnout, particularly if the senior has complex needs or cognitive impairment.
When family caregivers are emotionally and physically drained, they are likely less effective at playing this critical role. Comfort Keepers® are compassionate and professional caregivers can provide temporary relief to those who care for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home. Our respite care in Manhattan and surrounding areas can help.
What is Respite Care?
Often referred to as “short break” care, respite care services offer scheduled short-term breaks to families and other caregivers who require time outside of the home or simply need to take a break. Respite care plays a crucial role in supporting and preserving the primary caregiving relationship.
How Respite Care in Manhattan 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 your doctor or dentist for routine care.
- Give yourself a much-needed rest.
Comfort Keepers respite care for seniors can be scheduled for as little as a few hours a week or for as long as you need. Our around-the-clock care services 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.
