Dependable Respite Care for Seniors in Carlisle, PA and Surrounding Areas

Learn how respite care from Visiting Angels benefits both seniors and family caregivers in Carlisle, Chambersburg, Gettysburg and surrounding areas in PA

Taking it upon yourself to care for a loved one is one of the noblest, most generous things you can do, but it does come with a lot of challenges that may leave you frustrated and tired. When you need a break from caregiving, it is good to know that you can count on Visiting Angels Carlisle.

What Is Respite Care?

Respite, also known as short-term or temporary care, is provided when the primary caregiver is away, whether to go on a vacation, attend to other obligations or just rest. This type of care lets you take care of yourself while knowing that your loved one is in good hands, cared for by an experienced caregiver who will follow all your care guidelines and instructions, outlined in a personalized care plan.

Our caregivers can help your loved one with activities and tasks like:

  • Preparing meals
  • Cleaning and laundry
  • Reminding them to take their medications
  • Grocery shopping
  • Running errands
  • Bathing and getting dressed
  • And more

Companionship is naturally included in all our plans.

What is also important to note is that we can care for your loved one at home or in an assisted living facility, medical facility or even senior day care center, whatever works best for your family.

Our respite care program offers great flexibility as you can schedule care whenever needed, both on a temporary or long-term basis. We can help not just on weekdays but on weekends and holidays too. And naturally, you can make changes to your loved one’s care plan whenever needed, ensuring that they are always getting the exact care they need.

How to Get Started with In-Home Care from Visiting Angels Carlisle

Getting started with our home care services is as easy as it gets. All you have to do is contact your local Visiting Angels office in order to set up a consultation with one of our care coordinators. When you meet them, you will discuss your loved one’s situation and our team member will propose a suitable plan and schedule of care.

If you are satisfied with the plan, we will proceed to match your loved one with a caregiver who does not just have the skills needed to provide them with the support they require but who is compatible with them in terms of personality and interests.

Respite care is offered on an hourly basis so you can plan your loved one’s care to fit your schedule perfectly. If at some point they need more help or you wish to upgrade their care plan, we can always add services.
