Respite Care in Allentown
When helping a loved one through their aging journey, you may become so focused on meeting their needs that you forget to consider your own. Neglecting your need for time alone and self-care can have negative effects on your capacity as a family caregiver, which is why it is so important to get started with respite care sooner rather than later. At Visiting Angels® Allentown, we work to support family caregivers like yourself so they can take time off and find balance while continuing to help their loved ones age in place.
What is Respite Care?
Respite care takes a different approach than our other home care services. Families who request respite care typically want to remain in control of their loved one's care, but could benefit from temporary relief and short-term support. We match them with compassionate care providers who can step in as needed. Some family caregivers take advantage of this time off to go on vacation or take care of long-postponed errands. Others engage in self-care and bond with their friends and family members. However you choose to spend your time away from caregiving, you can finally have the opportunity to recharge and focus on yourself.
