Respite Care At Home in West Chester, PA and Surrounding Areas
We can give family members a break from providing care so they can rest, recharge, or focus on other important matters
Providing care to a family member or loved one can be a rewarding and bonding experience within a family. But even in the best situations, caregiving can be difficult. With the ongoing routine and responsibility, it can be a stressful and tiring task, especially when balanced with caring for children or going to work. As a family caretaker, it is important to know your limits when it comes to providing care. When family caretakers are tired, too busy or emotionally drained, they are likely less effective at providing the care that their loved one needs. That is where Comfort Keepers can help!

What Are Respite Services?
Known in some countries as “short break” care, respite care at home can provide planned short-term breaks for families and other unpaid care providers who need time outside the home or to simply take a rest. Whether provided for a few hours a week or for a few days, assistance from Comfort Keepers helps support and maintain the primary caregiving relationship.
How Comfort Keepers Can Help
Leaving the house for a few hours during the day or a week can be difficult when you are a family care provider. Our respite services give family caretakers time to leave the home and even provide 24 hour home care for a few days. Our caregivers can ensure that your loved ones are safe in their homes and give you comfort in knowing the one you care for is in good hands. This creates time for you to:
- Run errands for yourself or your loved one that you never seem to have time for.
- Go shopping.
- Attend meetings with a support group. Comfort Keepers can even provide you with information on support groups that are close to you.
- Provide care for yourself by going to the dentist or doctor for routine care.
- Rest. Allowing yourself to rest can benefit you and the care that you provide.
Comfort Keepers care services can be scheduled part-time, 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 take a child to college, go on a much needed vacation or attend a wedding out of town.
