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.
What is Respite Care?
We offer a lifeline for family caregivers that makes the task of caregiving more manageable and more sustainable. Respite care is a form of senior 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 you require frequent care visits to simplify your weekly routine.
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.
