Trusted Respite Care in Cape Cod

Burning the candle at both ends as a family caregiver only sets you up for burnout. While you may feel it is your duty to help your loved one at all times, your energy is not unlimited. It's important to take a break, so you can rest and recharge. Respite care from Visiting Angels® Cape Cod can help you do just that.

We understand that for many unpaid family caregivers, supporting a loved one offers more time to make precious memories together. However, there may come a time when you feel you simply have too much on your plate. Rather than allowing yourself to become overwhelmed by your responsibilities, take a step back from your demanding schedule with the help of our care providers.

Caregiver burnout is a state of extreme exhaustion and stress. This can creep up on you after failing to take ample breaks from your caregiving duties. Burnout can also lead to anxiety, depression, and the inability to meet your loved one's needs. Our respite services can help you combat burnout and keep it at bay.

What is Respite Care?

At Visiting Angels Cape Cod, we offer a lifeline for family caregivers that makes the task of caregiving more manageable and more sustainable. Respite care is a form of home care that involves short-term care visits, offering temporary coverage for family caregivers. You can arrange care visits according to your own needs and priorities, whether you want someone to fill in for you while you go on vacation or if you require frequent care visits to simplify your weekly routine.

Our team of caregivers consists of local individuals who are happy to provide support for family caregivers. In order to meet your needs, we offer around-the-clock availability. This allows us to provide care whenever you may be away. You can schedule respite care in the following ways:

  • Temporary care: If you have an upcoming vacation or an unforeseen family emergency, we are happy to step in. This is typically used as a one-time solution.
  • Part-time care: One of our caregivers can stop by for regularly-scheduled visits each week, giving you ample time for resting and tending to other obligations.
  • Support care: When your loved one's care is too much to handle, we can provide assistance with your duties. This cooperative style of care can lighten your load and provide friendly companionship for all.

How Respite Care Helps Seniors in Cape Cod

Care can be designed around your loved one's current routine, lifestyle, care concerns, and personal preferences, as well as your own special requests. We construct personalized care plans for seniors that ensure all of their needs are addressed while their family caregiver is away.

Our respite care services range from a helping hand to more advanced caregiving tasks. Some of the most commonly-requested services we offer in Cape Cod are:

  • Companionship and joyful social interaction
  • Help with grocery shopping and running errands
  • Diet planning and preparing daily meals
  • Assistance with dressing and grooming routines
  • Coordination of transportation for outings
  • Accompaniment to doctors' offices
  • Light housekeeping to tidy the home

In addition to the above services, our caregivers are well-versed in caring for seniors with certain illnesses and conditions. We are able to serve those living with Alzheimer's or dementia, as well as limited mobility and Parkinson's. With this specialized care, you can rest assured your loved one is receiving the care they need while you take time to rest.

Knowing your loved one's needs are met is reassuring. However, care needs and preferences change with time. Because our care is both flexible and customizable, it is easily adapted as well. We can add services to your loved one's custom care plan and increase or decrease our caregiver visits as you see fit. We want you to be in control of your loved one's senior care, and our team is happy to work with you to create a care plan that meets everyone's needs.
