Respite Care Offers The Additional Help You Need When Caring For Your Loved One

Nov 7, 2018 by Garrett Hafler

If you have never heard of respite care, you will be happy to know that it does exist. It is a beneficial service that allows you to better manage your life and the care of your loved one at once. Often, families struggle when it comes time to raise their own family and care for a sick or disabled family member. It often feels as though the individual has two full-time jobs and you may wear yourself thin.

Respite care works for your loved one, but it also provides you, the caregiver, with the services needed to help you. This service allows you some relief and the opportunity to provide your own self-care without the exhaustion that comes from around the clock care that you may be providing.

Comfort Keepers does offer respite care to individuals and families who need it the most and our services allow you to handle tasks you need to do such as pay bills, run errands and take the kids to events. You can also use the time to sleep, eat dinner at home, and relax. The caregivers that come out to your loved one’s home can help with all types of tasks such as:

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

The experts at Comfort Keepers work to match seniors with caregivers based on their common interests and special needs. Whether you need the services for a couple hours a day or once a month, we will work with you to make it happen.

Respite care is ideal for any family who struggles to take care of their own family and their loved one at the same time. Comfort Keepers is here to help you and we invite you to call us at your earliest convenience to learn more.
