Respite Care At Home in Douglasville, GA
Respite care at home can help you better care for your senior loved one by helping you care for yourself
Providing day to day care for an elderly family member has many rewards, but at the same time, it has its challenges as well. One of the biggest problems faced by most who take on this herculean task, is that they fail to realize just how physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausting this can be. It gets even harder when you are trying to juggle taking care of our own family, your career, and taking care of your home with caring for a loved one, it can easily become overwhelming. To help with this, Comfort Keepers offers respite care at home.
What Are Respite Services?
Known in some countries as “short break” care, respite services provide planned short-term breaks for families and other unpaid caregivers who need time outside the home or to simply take a rest. Respite care helps support and maintain the primary caregiving relationship.
Our Respite Care At Home Includes Many Services
There are many different homemaking and personal care services included with our respite services. For example, among the many homemaking services our caregivers offer are light housekeeping, laundry, dishes, cleaning bathrooms, running errands, even incidental transportation to places like the doctor, dentist, senior center, or church. Our caregiver can be there for a couple of hours several times a week or for entire days. We can also provide care at home 24/7 in the event you need to get away for a day or two.
But homemaking services are only the beginning, our respite care also offers a wide range of personal care services. Among these are bathing, grooming, assistance with toileting, incontinence care, and mobility. Our caregivers also offer one more special service designed to make your loved one feel relaxed and enjoy their company. Our caregivers offer friendly companionship in the form of conversation, joining in on hobbies, crafts, walking down memory lane, and generally providing friendship that puts them at ease while you are gone.
