Respite Care in Morgantown

When caring for an elderly or disabled parent it is important to allow yourself regular breaks. This is also true for spouses who provide daily care for their loved one. Family caregivers who don't take time to address their own needs can end up facing caregiver burnout. Burnout may lead to anxiety, depression, and poor physical health. Visiting Angels® Morgantown WV offers supportive respite care for families throughout Preston and Monongalia Counties. We can provide non-medical assistance for daily tasks both temporarily and long-term so your loved one can get the care they require, while you take some much needed time for yourself.

There are many reasons why respite care from Visiting Angels Morgantown is important. As a primary caregiver for your loved one, have you noticed yourself skipping meals while caring for your family member? Do you frequently miss out on sleep due to assisting your loved one overnight or worrying about their care? Have your friendships or personal life fallen by the wayside due to spending all of your time looking after a loved one? If so, you can benefit from a well deserved break. It is important to remember that in order to take good care of your loved one, you must first take care of yourself.

Respite Care from Visiting Angels Morgantown

There are different ways you may choose to utilize the respite care services from Visiting Angels Morgantown, depending on your family's needs.

Ways we can help include:

  • Temporary Care. Temporary care is helpful when a family caregiver has an emergency situation, is ill or injured, or is otherwise unable to care for a loved one. 
  • Part-Time Care. Part-time care can free up time for family caregivers for a few hours per week so they can have regular breaks. This allows caregivers to focus on themselves and avoid burnout.
  • Support Care. Support care can share the load with family caregivers, providing daily assistance or care alongside caregivers. This is particularly helpful when seniors are in need of continual support.
