Respite Care in Portland, OR and Surrounding Areas
We provide senior care on an as-needed basis, so you have the assistance you need when you need it
Providing care 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 caregivers are emotionally drained, they are likely less effective at playing this critical role.
Comfort Keepers can provide respite care to those who provide care for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home.
How Respite Care 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 a 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 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.
