Respite Care in Monroeville, PA and Surrounding Areas
Respite care gives family caretakers a break so they can rest and recharge while their loved ones receive interim home care services
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 caretakers who need time outside the home or to simply take a rest. Our respite care services include interim home care to help support and maintain the primary caregiving relationship without additional strain on families.
How Interim Home Care Services 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.
Our office serving Monroeville and surrounding areas provides respite care and interim home care services that can be scheduled for as little as a few hours a week. Additionally, around-the-clock elder care resources 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.
