Respite Care At Home in Lincoln, Narragansett, Barrington & Surrounding Areas of Rhode Island
Respite care at home gives you a break from providing care so you can rest, recharge, or focus on other important matters.
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 of Lincoln, RI can provide respite care at home 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 caregivers who need time outside the home or simply take a rest. Respite care helps support and maintain the primary caregiving relationship.
How Comfort Keepers Home Care Can Help
Respite care at home gives 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.
Comfort Keepers respite care at home 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.
