Respite Care in Huntington
Respite care services provided by Visiting Angels® Huntington give family caregivers much-needed time off to rest and recuperate. This type of in-home care often involves short-term care programs or temporary visits, allowing family caregivers to schedule time for themselves. At the same time, they can maintain confidence in the quality of care their loved ones are receiving.
We realize how physically, emotionally, and mentally demanding it can be to care for a spouse, parent, or grandparent. If you’re currently the only source of support your loved one can turn to in times of need, now may be the time to arrange for assistance from a professional care provider.
What is Respite Care?
With our respite care services at Visiting Angels Huntington, family caregivers can have a reliable system of support with their duties. While other forms of home care are typically managed by our professional care providers, family caregivers lead the way with respite care but benefit from assistance at specific times or with particularly difficult tasks.
Arranging for a professional to assist with your responsibilities can reduce your risk of experiencing caregiver burnout and enable you to live a more balanced lifestyle. For example, you can have a care professional visit your loved one on a daily or weekly basis to reduce your workload. You can also schedule in a vacation or temporary break from your role as a caregiver.
