Respite Care in Greater Lancaster, PA

Visiting Angels Offers Respite Care to Family Caregivers in Lancaster, Elizabethtown, Gap, and Surrounding Areas

Families with an aging loved one in ill health often feel responsible for providing care. While family caregivers can be a great option to keep loved ones together, the multiple stressors of caregiving can put stress on all the individuals in the family. Family caregivers tend to extend themselves to the point of sacrificing their own daily lives or needs. Respite care from Visiting Angels of Lancaster can give family caregivers the break they need to reset and refresh.

What Is Respite Care?

Respite care, also known as interim care, is a short-term solution for family caregivers who need to step away from caregiving responsibilities. Caregivers who are in good health themselves are best able to provide care for others and Visiting Angels of Lancaster can help family members ensure that they are in good shape to continue helping their loved ones.

When you work with our home care agency, you can be sure that your loved one is receiving the same kind of attentive, one-on-one care that you would provide. Respite care can help you take a vacation, stop putting off a trip, or even run errands or take time to rest.
