Respite Care //
All family caregivers need a break now and then. And here's a secret: sometimes your family can use a break from you, too. Meeting someone new and chatting about current events can be a welcome breath of fresh air to those who rely on others for care-giving. We provide respite care that gives you a break from care-giving. A well-designed respite program provides these breaks on a regular, scheduled basis. Giving yourself the gift of respite makes you a better family caregiver because it can recharge you physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Your senior loved ones also benefit from respite. Introducing a new caregiver provides the mental stimulation that keeps a mind sharp. Yet the professional caregiver will ensure your family member's routine stays intact.
You can receive respite services on a regularly scheduled basis (quarterly, for example) or when you need it for special events, such as to travel out of town for a wedding.
