Respite Care for Families in State College and Altoona, PA
Comfort Keepers provides respite care for family caregivers in State College, Altoona, and the surrounding PA areas
Adult children or other family members often find themselves in caregiver roles for their senior parents or elder loved ones. Although caregiving can be a rewarding and bonding experience within a family, the responsibility and ongoing routine can become stressful and tiring — especially when balanced with working a job, raising children and other responsibilities.
The bottom line? When family caregivers are emotionally drained, they are likely less effective at fulfilling their critical roles. Comfort Keepers of State College, PA provides respite care, or temporary relief, for family caregivers who need a break to rest and recharge.
What is Respite Care?
Known in some countries as “short break” care, respite services at home services provide planned short-term breaks for families and other unpaid caregivers who need time outside the home or to simply take a rest. These services also help to support and maintain the primary caregiving relationship.
