Respite Care in Bellingham
Are you one of the more than 40 million family caregivers in the United States? As a family caregiver, you may deal with overwhelming stress and a lack of time to pursue your own interests and ambitions. Respite care can help. At Visiting Angels® Bellingham, we offer comprehensive respite care services that include short-term care plans and temporary or ongoing care visits. Our goal is to support family caregivers and help them avoid burnout while also delivering the personalized, high-quality care their loved ones deserve as they age.

Respite care can be so much more than senior care services. With our care providers just a call away in the Bellingham area, you’ll feel you have a full support system at the ready when you need to take a vacation or short break from your responsibilities. Unlike other types of home care offered through our agency, these services keep family caregivers as the lead care provider and simply offer supplemental support as needed.
