Respite Care for Seniors and Family Caregivers in Monroe, MI and Surrounding Areas

At Visiting Angels, our respite care program helps seniors in Monroe, Temperance, Rockwood, Grosse Ile and surrounding areas in MI get the in-home elder care they need while providing family caregivers with some much-needed time to rest and recharge

Being able to look after a senior loved one is one of the most rewarding opportunities we receive in life. Whether you are caring for a senior parent or a sibling that is disabled, you may already have noticed how wonderful of an experience this can be. However, everybody needs a break every now and then. Many family caregivers, on the other hand, have a hard time allowing themselves this much needed time off because of guilt.

That’s why Visiting Angels offers respite care services for seniors and family caregivers in Monroe and surrounding communities in Michigan, as well as Toledo, OH. Not only can we help your loved one remain at home for as long as they wish, but we also give you an opportunity to focus on your other priorities in life or simply take a break.

The Importance of Professional Elder Care from Visiting Angels

There is no doubt that being a family caregiver can be very demanding. Many family caregivers find that, at first, this is a very rewarding job. However, as a loved one's chronic condition or illness starts taking an increasing toll on them, your responsibilities may begin to grow past a point you can handle. When it gets to that point, you do not need to be so hard on yourself.

One of the key aspects of quality elder care is actually being able to look after your loved one at the highest level. There is no doubt you will be able to do that if you burn out or are not at your best. Taking care of yourself is the first step in looking after others.

With home care services from Visiting Angels Monroe, you can have peace of mind knowing your loved one is in the capable and caring hands of our caregivers. We work around your loved one’s schedule, giving you time to focus on your work, family, friends or just your own well-being.

How Does Respite Care Work?

Before you get frustrated with your loved one or your responsibilities, consider how having an elder care professional around could help improve both of your lives.

So, what is respite care exactly? It is a type of temporary care as part of which a professional caregiver will come to your loved one's home and take over your responsibilities while you are not there. How much temporary assistance you get will depend on how much you need. Professional caregivers are available for a few hours a day or for even weeks at a time. We work with your schedule to make temporary care work for you.

Our caregivers can help with:

  • Planning and preparing meals
  • Doing dishes, laundry and other light housekeeping tasks
  • Personal hygiene, including bathing, dressing and grooming
  • Medication reminders
  • Transportation to and from appointments and fun activities
  • Running errands
  • And more
