More than 53 million adults in the U.S. provide unpaid care to someone over the age of 50. Caring for an older adult or a person with disabilities can be a full-time job with little to no time for personal activities. If you are the caregiver for a loved one, you know how challenging it can be to balance caregiving responsibilities with your own needs. That’s where respite care comes in. 

Respite care provides short-term relief for primary caregivers. It can be arranged for just an afternoon or several days or weeks. During this time, respite caregivers come to your home and provide companionship for your loved one while you take a break. This can be a great way to recharge yourself.

The responsibility of providing care can be stressful and tiring, especially when combined with the responsibilities of a job or caring for children. When family caregivers are emotionally drained, it is difficult to provide the best possible care for their loved ones. Comfort Keepers can provide relief.

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 a doctor or dentist for routine medical care

  • Relax

Respite care can also benefit the person receiving care. Your loved one will have an opportunity to socialize and interact with others, which helps support their mental and emotional health. Respite care can be customized to meet the needs of your loved one and is a great way to ensure that your loved one stays on the schedule that they are accustomed to.

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. If you are considering respite care for your loved one, contact Comfort Keepers of Greater Cleveland for more information.
