What is Respite Care?
This type of care provides temporary relief to primary and other unpaid caregivers while a trained professional assumes their care responsibilities during this interim period. Respite care can be offered from just a few hours per week, freeing up your daily schedule to relax or run an errand, to longer periods when you plan an extended break or vacation.
Whatever your needs may be, Comfort Keepers will step up to deliver customized care at flexible schedules so you can take a well-deserved break from caring for your loved one. During this time, our seasoned care professionals will make sure your Mom or Dad is safely and comfortably going about their preferred at-home routine.
What You Need to Know When Caring for an Elderly Loved One
There’s certain duality to caring for a loved one – it is both rewarding and challenging. To prevent burnouts, overexertion, amplified levels of stress, family caregivers need to take breaks and introduce relaxing self-care techniques to their busy lifestyles. For this reason, arranging occasional respite care from Comfort Keepers provides you with a convenient solution from which both you and your loved one can benefit.
One of the best things is that you’ll be able to rediscover the joy of spending time with your loved one as you’ll be returning well-rested and relaxed to resume your duties. Being a great family caregiver is about finding a perfect balance between Mom or Dad’s needs and your own.
