Respite Care Services Support Seniors and Family Caregivers in Eldersburg, MD

Visiting Angels offers respite care services for seniors and their family caregivers in Sykesville, Ellicott City, Eldersburg, Westminster and the surrounding areas in Maryland

As an aging parent or another family member begins to need some daily living assistance, it is natural for family members to assume the role of caregiver. You may be helping a loved one get to doctor's appointments, picking up their medications and groceries, and doing laundry or housekeeping. As much as you would like to provide the type of daily care your loved one needs, this may not be realistic. Managing your career, personal life, home responsibilities and your loved one's care can become overwhelming. This is where interim home care services from Visiting Angels of Eldersburg can help

Respite care services support - not replace - family caregivers

This service is available to all our senior clients and their families. This type of care is ideal for seniors who are still mostly independent but could benefit from part-time assistance. Interim home care may mean companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, medication reminders or help with running errands.

Respite care services are also useful for seniors with more advanced care needs. Often, family caregivers want to provide care for their loved ones but are unqualified or unable to help. For tasks like bathing, grooming, toileting and incontinence care, transferring and positioning, it is best to bring in a professional caregiver. Our senior care providers can come in each morning to help your loved one bathe, get dressed, fed and ready for the day. This allows family members to focus on their time spent with loved ones, not worrying about their loved one's safety or physical comfort.

Interim home care allows your senior loved one to get comfortable with their caregiver. This can be a great option for seniors with chronic or cognitive diseases. While they are well enough, your loved one will come to trust and confide in their caregiver. This will make more intimate personal care and long-term care an easy transition as their needs advance.
