Respite Care in Memphis
There's no shame in admitting that being a family caregiver is a challenge. In fact, it's important for family caregivers to take regular breaks to manage the stress of their responsibilities. If you're looking for a way to take some time off from your role as a caregiver, respite care may be the right solution for your situation. At Visiting Angels® Memphis, we can help you find the relief you're in search of while promoting your peace of mind about your loved one's well-being and access to high-quality care.
What is Respite Care?
Respite care can be defined in a few different ways. Our local care agency views this form of care as temporary or short-term services that allow family caregivers to take a break from their duties for a set period of time. We pair families with care professionals who can step in for a few hours at a time, days, or weeks to care for a senior in the comfort of their own home. Family caregivers can then use their time off to look after their own needs and build relationships with other important individuals in their lives.
