Respite Care in Chesapeake
When helping a loved one maintain their quality of life starts affecting your ability to maintain your own well-being, it may be time to take a break from caregiving. Fortunately, respite care is an option. The compassionate care providers at Visiting Angels® Chesapeake understand that you only want the best for your loved one and want to be by their side as they age in place. We can help you get some much-needed rest so you can regain the mental, physical, and emotional energy required to be the best caregiver possible.
What is Respite Care?
While other forms of senior home care typically have a care provider take over a family caregiver's duties for the long-term, respite care is more focused on short-term relief. This means you can plan on continuing to be your loved one's main source of support. However, you won't feel like you're alone in this process. Instead, you can always reach out to one of our professional care providers at Visiting Angels Chesapeake to step in and assist your loved one while you enjoy some much-needed time off.
Care visits can be scheduled for a temporary period or can be delivered at regular intervals. It all depends on your own needs as a family caregiver as well as your loved one's requirements for care and support as they age in place.
How Respite Care Helps Seniors in Chesapeake
In our efforts to support family caregivers, we hope to help them avoid the often detrimental effects of caregiver burnout. When you burn the candle at both ends and ignore your own needs in order to tend to those of your loved one, you may find the situation to be unsustainable. We can help you escape this cycle while ensuring your loved one always receives high-quality care.
Examples of the ways in which we support seniors while their family caregivers take time off include:
- Assisting with bathing and grooming routines
- Reminding seniors to take medications
- Preventing senior isolation through companionship
- Taking care of tidying up the home and doing chores
- Cooking meals and picking up groceries
