In-Home Respite Care for Seniors in Gastonia, NC and Surrounding Areas
Visiting Angels provides in-home respite care for seniors in Gastonia, Cramerton and surrounding areas in NC in order to give family caregivers peace of mind while they relax and recharge
Many adult children take on the role as primary caregiver when an elderly parent or loved one starts having issues completing everyday tasks or living independently. At first, the arrangement works for both the senior and family caregiver; the former gets the support they need while the latter gets to spend time with their loved one and ensures they're OK. However, the responsibility of caring for an aging loved one can be overwhelming for those who aren't prepared and can often make family caregivers experience burnout. Additionally, having to constantly provide care for a loved one can strain the relationship.
Fortunately, respite care for seniors from Visiting Angels Gastonia can be a lifeline for family caregivers and their loved ones. This type of home care typically involves short-term or temporary caregiving visits. These visits make it possible for family caregivers to take time away from unpaid caregiving duties—without compromising the quality of care received by their loved ones.
At Visiting Angels Gastonia, we know how difficult caring for an elderly loved one can be. We also know the positive difference respite care can make. If you provide care to a spouse, parent or grandparent and you need outside assistance, our caregivers are ready to lend a helping hand.
What is Respite Care for Seniors?
The majority of the time, family caregivers experience more stress than their loved one. Many family caregivers take on the responsibility of caring for an aging or disabled loved one. As a result of this responsibility, family caregivers tend to suffer from fatigue, stress and burnout.
Respite care for seniors can help eliminate the strain on a family caregiver's physical and mental health. Family caregivers may be able to take a break every couple of hours or after each meal. Respite care from Visiting Angels Gastonia is provided in the comfort of your loved one's home as opposed to residential senior care facilities, which allows your loved one to rest more easily and maintain their independence.
With other types of in-home care, our professional caregivers perform the majority of caregiving duties. Respite services, meanwhile, are provided in cases where family caregivers are performing most of this work on their own. To prevent a family caregiver from experiencing burnout, our respite care services can help provide routine care for your loved one.

All of our home care providers at Visiting Angels Gastonia have been carefully screened and selected prior to placement, and we take measures to find the right caregiver for every care recipient. That's true no matter what kind of care we're providing, including short-term and temporary caregiving.
Providing home care for an elderly family member or friend can be an exhausting and emotionally taxing experience, and we want to make sure our caregivers are prepared. We want to support you as you provide care, too.
