Respite Care in Austin
Respite care gives unpaid family caregivers relief from their duties and helps them create more balance in their relationships. Our professional care providers at Visiting Angels® Austin offer short-term and long-term care plans to fill in for family caregivers on a temporary or ongoing basis. When you know your loved one is in our hands, you’ll never have to be concerned about compromising the quality of their care when you need time off.
What is Respite Care?
Caring for a loved one can be incredibly difficult. The mental, emotional, and physical aspects of caregiving are often more overwhelming than those on the outside realize. It’s also not uncommon for family caregivers to put too much on their plate at once. After all, they only want the best for their loved one, and they feel it is their duty to be available when they need a helping hand.
We offer a support system for these overworked caregivers. Family caregivers are often at risk of enduring burnout, which can not only affect their own well-being but also the level of care they can offer their loved one. Our respite care services enable family caregivers to continue assisting their loved one but lessen their burden and make their responsibilities more manageable.
