Respite Care in DeKalb
When elderly adults first face age-related difficulties that make independent living a struggle, they often turn to their family members for support with their daily routines. Caring for a loved one can be incredibly rewarding, but it can also be exhausting. Without time off, these individuals are at risk of burnout. Respite care delivered by the care professionals at Visiting Angels® DeKalb allows family caregivers to comfortably take time off while maintaining peace of mind about their loved one's situation.
What is Respite Care?
Respite care offers temporary support for family caregivers in the Dekalb area, which enables them to take a short break from their responsibilities. Family caregivers can use their time away from their duties to rest and recuperate from the demands of their role. They may also want to spend time with other family members and friends, or even invest in their education or self-care. No matter how they choose to spend their time, they'll never have to worry that they're leaving their loved one without high-quality care.
How Respite Care Helps Seniors in DeKalb
Every family is in a different situation and requires a different approach to care. We take the time to get to know family caregivers and their loved ones before we create their care plans. Our care coordinators always consider the types of support the elderly adult requires, their preferred routines, and how often their family caregiver needs time off. Our flexible scheduling process makes it possible for family caregivers to hand over their responsibilities to a care professional for a few hours, days, or weeks.
Here's how our services can help seniors go about their daily routines:
- Doing light chores and laundry
- Preparing and serving meals
- Engaging in joyful social interaction
- Providing transportation as needed
- Offering reminders about taking medications
- Going to appointments and running errands
