Caregiver Respite Service

It is often exhausting for a home-caregiver experiencing the challenges of a loved one in memory decline.  Time-off is critical for the caregiver's health.  We provide short-term care for just a few hours or an extended period to give respite to the caregiver, while the one in need of care receives attention in safe surroundings.  Everyone needs a break now and then, and using respite services can support and strengthen your ability to be a caregiver. 

 

As stated about "Using respite care" on the Alzheimer's Association website, 

"Caregiving is demanding — and it's normal to need a break. Seeking help does not make you a failure. Remember that respite services benefit the person with dementia as well as the caregiver.

Respite care can help you as a caregiver by providing a new environment or time to relax. It's a good way for you to take time for yourself.

Respite care can provide:

    A chance to spend time with other friends and family, or to just relax

    Time to take care of errands such as shopping, exercising, getting a haircut or going to the doctor

    Comfort and peace of mind knowing that the person with dementia is spending time with another caring individual

Respite care services can give the person with dementia an opportunity to:

    Interact with others having similar experiences

    Spend time in a safe, supportive environment

    Participate in activities designed to match personal abilities and needs"
