Respite Care Provides You With Much Needed Help As You Care For Your Family Member

Nov 19, 2018 by Shannon Meller

A specialized and helpful service offered to caregivers is respite care. This type of additional help is more than needed in many situations and is a blessing for those who do receive it. Many families find themselves trying to juggle taking care of their disabled or sick elderly parent and making sure their own family is covered too. Being torn in two directions is hard and it leaves you feeling like you have multiple full-time jobs.

Respite care is very helpful, and it provides your loved one with the care they need, but, more importantly, it provides you with the ability to provide self-care to yourself. You will have the opportunity to care for your family and self without the mental and physical exhaustion you have been carrying around on your back.

Comfort Keepers offers respite care to families who are in need of the additional services and help. When our caregivers provide you with respite, you will be able to head out and run the errands you need to, rest, relax, enjoy dinner with your family at home, and similar activities. Our caregivers will help with many different tasks to include:

  • Bathing
  • Laundry
  • Toileting
  • Feeding
  • Exercise
  • Social activities
  • And more

The experts here at Comfort Keepers work to match your senior with a caregiver based on your loved one’s needs and common interests. Whether you are in need of a couple hours of help a month or a couple hours a week, we are here for you.

Respite care is designed to help you and you can take the break you need to take care of yourself and your family. We are here to work with you – call us today or at your convenience to discuss your options.
