Respite Care in Harrisburg
Could you benefit from the help of a respite care provider who could relieve you from the day-to-day grind of caregiving? At Visiting Angels® Harrisburg, we know many family caregivers feel stressed out and overwhelmed by their responsibilities. After all, providing care for a loved one can be difficult when you’re on your own. Our services ensure these overworked individuals have time for self-care, rest, and rejuvenation. That way, they can maintain their role as a caregiver while also maintaining balance in their lives.
What is Respite Care?
Respite care can take many forms, but the most popular options we have available include short-term care plans, temporary visits from a care provider, and regularly scheduled care visits. These services are delivered in cases where family caregivers prefer to conduct most of the work of caregiving but want to be able to take time away from their duties while knowing their loved one is in safe hands.
If you’re one of the more than 40 million unpaid family caregivers in the country, our services can significantly reduce your risk of burnout and make your responsibilities more manageable. You can rely on us to step in to care for your loved one when you want to take a vacation, pursue other interests, or simply get some much-needed rest.
