Respite care gives family caregivers in Pittsburgh a break to rest, recharge, or focus on other important matters.
Respite care providers understand that caregiving can be a rewarding and bonding experience for family members. Yet in even the best situations, the responsibility and ongoing routine can be stressful and tiring—especially when balanced with a full-time job or caring for children. In circumstances such as these, interim home care services can be tremendously helpful in providing needed breaks from caregiving responsibilities.
When family caregivers are emotionally drained, they are significantly less effective at playing this critical role. Comfort Keepers ® can provide respite services or temporary interim home care services to those who care for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in an elder care 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. Respite services help support and maintain the primary caregiving relationship.
How We Can Help
Respite care services give family caretakers time to leave the home for a few hours or even a few days, with the peace of mind that 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.
Respite care and interim home care services can be scheduled for as little as a few hours a week. Additionally, around-the-clock at home elder 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.
