Respite Care in Painesville, OH, and the Surrounding Area
Comfort Keepers provides care that allows family caregivers to take a break and take care of themselves
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 balanced 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.
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. Our caregivers can provide care that supports and maintains the primary caregiving relationship.
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 senior care 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.
