Respite Care in Acton
While you may feel it is important for you to play an active role in your loved one's care, you may also wonder how you can maintain a sustainable caregiving situation without feeling burned out. Respite care can help you balance your role as a caregiver with your need for relief from your duties. At Visiting Angels® Acton, we're passionate about helping local families find senior care solutions that give them confidence about the future. Our services enable unpaid family caregivers to experience the joys of helping a loved one while ensuring they can take necessary breaks that promote their own well-being and quality of life.
What is Respite Care?
Respite care can take various forms and can easily be adapted to the unique needs and preferences of your family in the Acton area. For example, you may want to have a care professional visit your loved one's home when you need to be away for a few hours to attend an appointment. Alternatively, you might want to book a vacation for a few days or weeks while knowing someone will be there to provide high-quality care for your loved one. Our care can also be scheduled when unexpected needs arise due to an emergency.
