Respite Care in Lansing
When family caregivers feel completely drained by the challenges of their responsibilities, they often put themselves at risk of burning out. Respite care from Visiting Angels® Lansing gives family caregivers the opportunity to step back from their duties for a set period of time. With the ability to take a breather every now and then, they can engage in self-care and preserve their own well-being in challenging life chapters.
What is Respite Care?
Respite care can take various forms based on the unique needs of different family caregivers and their loved ones. We can accommodate a variety of situations, living circumstances, and scheduling preferences to give family caregivers relief from their responsibilities while helping their loved ones manage their age-related issues.
In general, this type of care involves temporary visits from a care professional and a plan of care to cover short-term needs. Our care providers often step in for family caregivers who want to take a vacation for a few weeks or simply take a few hours off to run errands and develop other personal relationships.
