Respite Care in Middletown
When seniors require support with their age-related needs, they often first look to their family members for help. While many family caregivers take joy in caregiving, they also need a break every once in a while to look after their own well-being. Respite care delivered by professional care providers in Middletown helps family caregivers avoid burnout and enables them to take a more sustainable approach to the task of caregiving.
What is Respite Care?
At Visiting Angels® Middlefield, we know many families are new to the idea of respite care and may be unsure of how it could fit into their caregiving routine. In general, this type of care is temporary and makes it possible for a senior's primary caregiver to take time off for a specified period. While the primary caregiver is away, a professional care provider takes over their responsibilities and cares for the senior.
The primary caregiver can then use their time off to rest, relax, tend to other relationships and responsibilities, or run errands. With the knowledge that their loved one is being cared for by a professional, they never have to worry that the quality of their loved one's care will suffer simply because they are away for a few hours or days.
How Respite Care Helps Seniors in Middletown
There's no "one-size-fits-all" approach to this form of care. We believe it's incredibly important to get to know the needs of families and craft a custom care plan that accommodates them and helps them find peace of mind. Our care plans consider both the senior's care requirements and routines as well as the caregiver's need for relief.
Our services often take the following forms:
- Help with dressing and grooming
- Companionship and participation in a senior's hobbies
- Preparing healthy meals for the senior
- Providing safe transportation and running errands
- Offering important reminders
