Respite Care in Hickory
It's not uncommon for elderly adults in need of a helping hand at home to turn to their loved ones for support, especially if they have family members living nearby. Family caregivers are often more than happy to help, but eventually this role can take a toll on them. Respite care services from our local home care agency in the Hickory area help family caregivers take time off when needed so they can avoid feeling exhausted and burned out from their caregiving duties.
What is Respite Care?
The respite care services delivered by our caregiving team at Visiting Angels® Catawba Valley differ based on the individual needs of each family in the Hickory area. For example, we commonly provide temporary care for seniors when their family caregivers want to take a vacation or out-of-town trip. We also offer ongoing care visits that make it possible for family caregivers to schedule weekly breaks and get the rest and rejuvenation they need.
