Respite Care

In-home respite care services provide caregivers with a little personal time.

If you find yourself caring for an aging loved one, you are not alone! Family caregivers have used our respite services for vacation, to spend time with family, or spend some real quality time with the loved one for whom they care for.

 

In-Home Respite Care Services

Take the next step towards a happier, healthier life for both you and your loved one. You can relax knowing we will be there for your family when you need us most — seven days a week for as little as a few hours a day.

 

Qualified Caregiver Assistance

Qualified, caring, trained, insured, bonded, and flexible caregivers who can help you take a few hours, without feeling guilty or stressed, while you take care of yourself or other members of your family. Our caregivers can assist your elderly loved one for a few hours a week, a few hours a day, or more. Giving yourself a little bit of time away may be just what the doctor ordered and will help you to be a much better family caregiver.

 

In-Home Assessments

Currently, we are administering modified, virtual in-home assessments, due to COVID-19 precautions.

As soon as conditions permit, we will be back to routinely performing in-home assessments to develop a customized care plan for your loved ones.

You may choose to have us carry out the care plan in whole or in part, or you may simply choose to use the care plan to improve your own ability to care for your loved one.

 

Information & Training

We have access to (and offer) a wealth of information, training and resources for caregivers.

We will even conduct a free workshop on fall prevention for your group upon request.

Respite Care Statistics

In the 21st Century, the demands placed on family and other informal caregivers continue to escalate, and will eventually affect nearly every American family.

  • Nearly a quarter (23.9%) of U.S. households are now involved in caring for an elderly family member or relative, spending an average of 20 hours a week in caregiving-related chores.
  • Some 80% of caregivers provide unpaid assistance seven days a week.

  • Long-distance caregivers miss nearly 15 million days of work each year.

  • Long-term family caregiving takes a significant toll on workers. Lost productivity, absenteeism, interruptions and replacing employees due to elder care costs American business in excess of $11.4 billion annually.

  • A significant decline in the number of family caregivers is occurring in the U.S., while at the same time, the demand for elder care is increasing.
