Comfort Keepers Respite Care in Hickory, NC and Surrounding Areas
We give you a break from providing care at home with respite care in Hickory, NC
Providing care at home for a loved one 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.
When family home care providers 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 provide care at home for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home.

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 helps support and maintain the primary caregiving relationship.
How Comfort Keepers Can Help
Respite services give you time to leave the home for a few hours or even a few days, knowing the one you provide home help 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 care services can be scheduled for as little as a few hours a week. Additionally, around-the-clock care at home 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.
