Respite Care Services in Greensboro, NC

Comfort Keepers has programs to help family caregivers care for themselves and their loved ones.

The decision to be the one person in your family to care for an elderly loved one seems easy for many who choose to do so. After they have done so for a while, they see just how challenging it can be. In many cases providing this type of care can become a full-time job from which there often seems no escape.

In a recent study conducted by the AARP, the following numbers were noted:

  • Average time spent caring for a loved one approx. 24.4 hours
  • Partners spend an average of 44.6 hours caring for their spouse or partner
  • Family caregivers spend over 41 hours caring for a loved one

We're Here for You

There are plenty of reasons people choose to become a family caregiver for an elderly loved one. Most felt like being there for the same loved one who cared for them when they couldn't. But, providing this level of care tends to be exhausting. When you feel yourself reaching this point, you need the help of a respite care provider, such as Comfort Keepers of Greensboro, NC.

We offer a professional caregiver who can be there to give you a break from constantly caring for your loved one. Whether for a few minutes or a few hours, this helping hand can be just enough to give time to rest and recharge.

We Have Great Caregivers

Each member of our team of caregivers is among the best available in Guilford County and the Piedmont Triad. They are fully trained, certified, and licensed. All caregivers must undergo and pass a stringent background check. Then they have to pass our personality test. Our test requires our caregivers to demonstrate a warm, friendly, and compassionate attitude that remains in place no matter how hard things get.

How Will You Talk to Your Loved One About This?

Trying to talk to a senior about the need to bring in the help of a professional respite care provider can prove to be very challenging. Most will oppose the idea for fear of losing their independence; others are more concerned about sharing their personal and medical conditions with strangers. Following these tips can help get the conversation going in the right direction:

  • Be sure you emphasize that you will not abandon them and will continue being their primary family caregiver.
  • Choose the place and time to talk very carefully
  • Make your questions as direct as possible
  • You must realize you aren't likely to succeed after the first conversation
  • Focus your conversations on the many benefits for both you and your loved one
  • Be sure you listen to their concerns and points of view
  • Do your homework and be ready to offer several options and any potential senior care schedules
  • Use questions designed to guide your loved one to the "right" conclusion

Why Do You Need a Respite?

How do you know if you need a respite care provider? Consider these questions: "What will you do if one of your kids or spouse has an emergency?" "Who can you count on to care for your loved one if you have to leave or your job schedule changes?" You can only count on family so much. When you need help, you can count on to be there when you need them; you need a professional who can step in and help.

There is more to your life than emergencies that might require an extra set of hands. For example, when you have medical/dental appointments, you must go to the bank or grocery shopping. What about when you need a short break to recharge your batteries? We have a caregiver who can be there and give you the time away from your home you need to get things done.
