Comfort Keepers Respite Care For Seniors in Sheboygan, WI and surrounding areas
Comfort Keepers® respite care for seniors provides family caregivers breaks from caregiving.
No matter how much you cherish your opportunity to care for a parent or other adult at home, caregiving can be tiring — emotionally, mentally, and physically. To provide the best care possible for your loved one, you need to take care of yourself, too, through respite care. This means scheduling time off to attend to other responsibilities and get needed rest so that you can return to your loved one feeling refreshed.
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.
Comfort Keepers schedules caring, professional in-home senior caregivers — our Comfort Keepers® — to care for your loved one while you
- go to work,
- take care of shopping and other errands,
- attend a child’s school event,
- meet with friends for lunch,
- go to the doctor, or
- get away overnight or for longer.
Comfort Keepers of Sheboygan and Fond du Lac makes it easy to schedule respite care for seniors for the period of time you need. You can schedule respite care on a regular basis, for instance, when you work, or on an as-needed basis — which can range from a few hours to provide you with a little personal time, to longer periods. You can even schedule around-the-clock care, so you can take a much-needed and anticipated vacation.
Comfort Keepers enables you to leave home with peace of mind, knowing your loved one is in the capable care of a Comfort Keeper.
As a family caregiver, you are not alone. Nearly 44 million Americans care for an older relative, and many of them put their own health at risk by not seeking adequate help.
