Respite Care: Helping You Care for Your Loved One

When you’re the primary caregiver for someone who lives with health challenges, it can mean you’re responsible for them 24 hours a day. In the beginning, it may have been possible to leave them alone for periods of time, but eventually, your loved one may require someone to care for them around the clock.

That’s where respite care comes in. We can help you care for your loved one when you need to do any of the following:

  • Take your children to weekly after-school activities
  • Pick up groceries and run other errands for your family every Tuesday
  • Attend weekly exercise classes for yourself
  • Go away on a much-deserved vacation for a week

Whether you need someone to care for your loved one for a few hours a week, several days a week, or for a week at a time (including overnight care), we have different options available. Our nurse case manager will ensure all medical needs—including medication and therapy—are taken care of. We also provide services such as light housekeeping, personal hygiene, and meal planning and feeding.

These are some of the types of care we offer:

  • Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care
  • Diabetes Care
  • Parkinson’s Care
  • Stroke Recovery
  • Recovery after Surgery
  • Palliative Care
  • Companionship
  • Live-in Caregiver and 24-Hour Monitoring

And a personalized routine can include help with any of the following:

  • Bathing and dressing
  • Light housekeeping
  • Meal preparation and feeding
  • Medication management and administration
  • Toileting and perineal (incontinence) care
  • Washing and folding laundry
  • And much more

With respite care, you will remain the primary caregiver, but we step in to help so you can take care of your other responsibilities and also you. Because with know firsthand how important self-care is for a caregiver. Contact us today for a free consultation to learn how we can help you and your loved one.
