How to Know When Your Family Needs Respite Care for an Aging Loved One in Bangor, Auburn, ME, or the Surrounding Area

When an aging loved one starts to need help, family members often feel responsible for providing care and assistance. At Visiting Angels Mid Maine, we know there is nothing more important than family, and family members provide emotional and social support that is irreplaceable in the life of your loved one. We know that the multiple stressors of raising kids, caring for parents, and holding down a job can be overwhelming. That is why we offer comprehensive respite care services, offering family caregivers the break they need to reset and refresh.

Respite care, also known as interim care, is a solution for family caregivers who need time in their schedule to step away from elderly care duties. Caregivers who are in good health themselves are better able to provide good care for others. Our expert home care providers know the responsibilities your family have taken on, and the complexities of providing care for a family member. When you work with Visiting Angels Mid Maine, you can be sure that your loved one is receiving the same kind of attentive, compassionate care that you yourself would provide.
