Respite Care Supports Family Caregivers in Melbourne, FL with Interim Home Care Services

Respite care from Visiting Angels allows family caregivers in Melbourne, FL to take time to relax while their loved ones continue to receive quality care

Providing care for a loved one and catering to their needs so that they can remain living safely and comfortably at home is one of the most generous things you can do. But if you have no one to help you, what do you do when you need a break? Visiting Angels Melbourne can help.

Although rewarding, being a family caregiver can be both stressful and demanding at times. You need to take good care of yourself to be able to provide the best possible care for Mom or Dad. Unfortunately, many family caregivers find it difficult to balance their personal lives and focus on their own needs while providing care. With our interim home care services, you are allowed to take a short break and disengage for a few hours of a few days to recuperate.

The Benefits of Respite Care

Visiting Angels will take the time to get to know your loved one so we can refer the right caregiver from our network of independent care providers. Depending on your plans, a friendly caregiver can visit Mom or Dad for a few hours per day or several times per week. Our interim home care visits will give you enough time to run errands, focus on your career or kids, take a well-deserved vacation or simply rest and recharge.

When a caregiver visits your loved one, they will quickly put them at ease by engaging them in a friendly conversation. Our referred caregivers will provide assistance with a variety of tasks such as light housekeeping, meal preparation, medication reminders and personal hygiene, to name just a few. After awhile, your loved one will start looking forward to our visits.
