Respite Care for Seniors and Family Caregivers in Englewood, CO

Caring for a parent or loved one in their senior years is both a cherished opportunity and a significant responsibility. It allows us to spend quality time together and enjoy each other's company, keeping them at home where they feel comfortable and more independent, while still providing the necessary assistance.

It can be daunting. Caregivers often experience high levels of stress and fatigue, which can impact their own health and well-being. It’s essential to recognize that caregivers need time to rest, recharge, and attend to their own needs to provide the best care possible.

That’s where Visiting Angels can help. Whether you need short term, long term, or temporary support, we offer quality respite care to seniors and families living in Englewood, Littleton, Aurora, Lakewood, Centennial, and other Colorado communities around Denver.

What Is Respite Care?

Respite care is supplemental in-home care services, freeing you up so you can tend to your other obligations, such as a career, your own family, general errands, following your own hobbies, or even taking a vacation. Respite care with Visiting Angels gives you the peace of mind to live your own life, while caring for your loved one, ensuring you have the best frame of mind for everyone. All while knowing your loved one is cared for and has everything they need, even when you can’t be there.

Our caregivers are paired with clients so there is consistency and it helps build the relationship between all. They can provide a variety of services to help with the activities of daily living, whether it’s light housekeeping, grocery shopping, meal preparation, and more. They also are available to provide simple yet meaningful companionship. This is particularly important for clients who are facing dementia or Alzheimer’s. Many of our Visiting Angels have specialized training to support specific health and disability needs, ready to help you help your loved one.

Who Needs In-Home Care Services?

Visiting Angels can supplement your role in being a caregiver, offering short-term or scheduled times for formal care, expertise, continued care and companionship for your loved one.

Caring for a family member shouldn’t feel like a chore, increase your stress levels, or lead to resentments. Spend more time focusing on spending time together and caring for each other. Enlist the help of respite care to help you recognize the signs of and avoid caregiver burnout. 

What Does Respite Care Include?

Respite care can provide a lot of different types of care for your loved one. Here are a few ways respite care can support you and your loved one:

  • Personal Care

    From grooming and hygiene, including bathing and dressing, respite caregivers can assist your loved one with personal care services. It is often a big part of respite care because it tends to be more comfortable for all involved to have a non-family member help with these tasks.
  • Household Assistance

    Taking care of household tasks and chores is both time consuming and a sign of independence. By getting assistance with small tasks both you and your loved one can feel the relief almost instantly. It allows your loved one to remain more independent, so they don’t feel like they have to rely on you for everything. Whether it’s preparing meals, light housekeeping and tidying, and even folding clothes, Visiting Angels can help keep the household running smoothly in order to offer more peace of mind for you and your loved one.
  • Companionship

    One of the most challenging aspects of caregiving is being there, providing the mental stimulation and companionship that your loved one needs and craves. That’s why a large part of respite care services is offering companionship and social interaction to help stave off depression. Respite caregivers are available to talk, take part in activities, go for walks or play games or other hobbies. Older adults need socialization and cognitive stimulation, and to continue doing the activities they love, as much as possible.

How Can Respite Care Help Families?

Primary caregivers often get burned out because they rarely take time for themselves and their own daily activities. Respite care can provide temporary relief by providing quality care to their loved ones. Giving family caregivers a break can improve the entire family’s quality of life and mental health, restoring a healthy balance to the family roles in the long term.

Working with a respite care provider allows your family member to stay in their own home, have individualized care, consistent companionship, and gives the whole family peace of mind.
