Care for Yourself Too With In-Home Respite Care
Caring for an older loved one is a rewarding and challenging experience. For many caregivers, caregiving duties combined with work and family obligations can quickly lead to burnout. Fortunately, in-home respite care can also give caregivers time away to care for themselves.
Respite care is a valuable resource that offers temporary relief for primary caregivers responsible for the well-being of aging or disabled loved ones. It allows caregivers to take a break from their duties and responsibilities, allowing them to rest and recharge. At the same time, respite care ensures seniors receive the care and support they need in a safe and nurturing environment.
What Does Respite Care for Caregivers Entail?
With respite care from our compassionate team, family members can rest easy while taking time away from their caregiving duties. We provide a wide range of services designed to meet the unique needs of your loved ones, including:
- Light housekeeping and laundry
- Personal care assistance with bathing, dressing, hygiene, etc.
- Medication reminders
- Meal planning and preparation
- Transportation and accompaniment to doctor’s appointments and social outings
- Shopping and errand running
- Cheerful companionship
- And much more
For added support and safety, we also utilize discreet, yet innovative technology to ensure older loved ones are safe, even after the caregiver has gone home. Our SmartCare system can track your loved one’s movements and routines in the home and send alerts if any alterations may be cause for concern. This added layer of protection is ideal for seniors who have Alzheimer’s or dementia and may experience wandering or anyone who is at an increased risk of falling.
