Providing respite care services to help recharge family caregivers in the Williamsport, PA area.
Providing care for an aging senior can be a rewarding, meaningful experience within a family, yet, in even the best situations, the responsibility and ongoing routine can be both stressful and tiring—especially when balanced with a maintaining a career and/or caring for children.
Importantly, when family caregivers are emotionally drained, they are less likely to provide the best care for their loved one. That's where Comfort Keepers® respite care services come in. Our caregivers can provide respite care services, also known as temporary relief, to those who care for family members but need time to rest, relax, recharge or focus on other important matters.
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 care helps support and maintain the primary caregiving relationship.
How Comfort Keepers® Respite Care Services Can Help
Respite care services give family caregivers and loved ones 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 doctor or dentist for routine care.
- give yourself a much-needed rest.
Our respite services can be scheduled 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 attend a wedding out of town, take a child to college, or go on a much-needed vacation. Contact us to learn more!
