Respite Care in Albany, NY and Surrounding Areas

Caring for a loved one is one of the most generous and caring things you can do. Whether you’re caring for a parent with Alzheimer’s or a disabled sibling, you’re providing the assistance they need to continue living safely at home. But what do you do when you need a break? The in-home care program from Visiting Angels® is an option.

What are Respite Care Services?

Respite care services provide short-term relief for primary caregivers. Many family member caregivers experience stress and emotional exhaustion trying to juggle their needs with the responsibilities of caring for an elderly loved one.

How Respite Care Helps

At Visiting Angels of Albany, our in-home care program matches your loved one with one of our friendly and compassionate caregivers. Caregivers can visit for a few hours a day or several times a week to provide family caregivers with the opportunity to run errands, go to work, take a vacation, or simply rest and recharge.

When our caregivers visit, they will quickly put your loved one at ease. While engaging in friendly conversation, caregivers can also aid with a wide variety of home care needs. Our caregivers can help your loved one with dressing and bathing, transferring assistance, and other personal care needs. They can also help around the house performing simple chores and preparing healthy meals. The engaged care we provide makes it easy for your loved one to look forward to these visits and can help relieve the anxiety or guilt you may feel by stepping away for a few hours.
