Respite Care in Helena
When your loved one's care needs feel overwhelming, it may be time to take a break. Respite care can make a positive difference in your well-being by giving you time away from your responsibilities. At Visiting Angels® Helena, we seek to not only help elderly adults as they age in place, but also support the family caregivers who are often there for them around the clock. When you have the support system of our care agency on your side, you can protect yourself from caregiver burnout and have the energy to focus on the rewards that caregiving brings.
What is Respite Care?
You'll find that respite care is unlike other forms of home care in a few ways. First, it involves short-term visits rather than an ongoing schedule of care. Of course, we can always have a care provider step in for you on a frequent basis if you would like regular breaks from your duties as a caregiver. Additionally, under this care type, we ensure family caregivers remain their loved ones' primary source of support. Our services simply help these hardworking individuals get the relief they need to rest and feel rejuvenated.
How Respite Care Helps Seniors in Helena
Unpaid family caregivers are at a high risk of experiencing exhaustion of both a physical and mental nature. This condition has even been termed "caregiver burnout." Respite care can help you avoid burnout by allowing you to focus on self-care as needed. You can request care visits from a professional on our team whenever you desire a few hours to yourself or want to plan an out-of-town vacation.
You can count on us to assist your loved one in a variety of ways, including the following:
- Respectful personal care assistance
- Help with buying groceries and running errands
- Reliable medication reminders
- Social interaction and emotional support
- Accompaniment on outings and appointments
- Light household and homemaking duties
