What is Respite Care?
Respite care gives you, the family member, a break from providing care duties for your loved one. Whether you are caring for your mother, father, spouse or loved one, respite care helps defend against the physical and emotional toll that can lead to depression, anxiety, illness, and exhaustion. When you’re looking after a loved one who requires frequently monitored care Angel Companions Senior Care can help by providing ongoing weekly intervals of care or provide live-in care services for a long weekend away or a couple of weeks’ vacation.
Who Needs Respite Care?
Anyone who provides care for their family member is in need of some relief with our respite care. Helping your loved one is overwhelming without some support; such as Angel Companions. Our care allows you to better support your family because you can take some time to relax and refresh. When using Angel Companions respite care, even just for a few hours, you often return feeling a renewed energy.
Often times the person who needs care will be in denial and they will tell you that they don’t need any help. Try not to take their defensive posture personally but rather focus on a necessary means to an end. Angel Companions Senior Care suggests when talking to your family member to put the focus on YOURSELF and not their care needs. You can explain that having an Angel Companions Senior Care caregiver will alleviate your stress and worry. It will allow you more time to manage your household needs and responsibilities and give you the peace of mind you so deserve.
What type of Respite Care Services do We Offer?
