Respite Care in New Orleans

With our help, you can continue caring for your loved one while also living a more balanced lifestyle.
What is Respite Care?
Respite care isn’t only a form of in-home care utilized by families across the local New Orleans community. It is also a support system for families whose loved ones require assistance on a regular basis. While other types of care available through our agency have a member of our team perform the majority of caregiving tasks, this differs with respite care. Instead, family caregivers can maintain their role and continue caring for their loved ones while also having the opportunity to take vacations or breaks as needed.
How Respite Care Helps Seniors in New Orleans
In many cases, these services are scheduled on a short-term basis or as part of a temporary plan for care. This could be because the family caregiver wants to step away from their duties for a certain period of time. However, care can also be scheduled on an ongoing basis. With weekly or monthly visits penciled in, family caregivers can look forward to regular blocks of time in which they can rest, relax, or cultivate other important relationships in their lives.
We’re able to care for seniors with all kinds of age-related difficulties, conditions, and challenges. Even if your loved one is dealing with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, we can provide specialized services that address their symptoms.
Examples of activities we can offer professional support with include:
- Running errands
- Remembering medication schedules
- Attending doctors’ appointments
- Preparing meals
- Keeping the house tidy
- Grooming and getting dressed
