Respite Care in Mt. Vernon
Are you concerned about experiencing caregiver burnout? If you are one of the many millions of family caregivers providing unpaid support across the country, you may already be feeling physically and mentally exhausted by your duties. As a local care agency, we know how important it is for family caregivers to have access to reliable respite care services. You can always look to the compassionate team at Visiting Angels® Mt. Vernon to help you take a break when you need time away from caregiving.
What is Respite Care?
Respite care services are differentiated from other forms of senior home care in a few ways. First, they ensure the family caregiver remains in charge of their loved one's care. Instead of having one of our care professionals step in as the senior's primary source of care, our team members take on a supportive role. Second, these types of services are usually provided for shorter periods of time based on temporary care plans. Of course, we can always set up ongoing visits for family caregivers who want frequent breaks throughout the month.
How Respite Care Helps Seniors in Mt. Vernon
Respite care can make a huge difference in family caregivers' quality of life by ensuring they can focus on self-care without feeling overcome with guilt or worry. By avoiding burnout, these individuals can maintain their ability to continue supporting their loved one throughout their golden years.
That being said, our services are also incredibly beneficial for elderly adults. Many seniors look forward to conversing with a new companion and having stimulating social interactions. Our caregivers strive to be excellent conversation partners and offer emotional support for seniors who are at risk of becoming isolated or feeling lonely.
The range of services we offer under this category of care span our full range of care types and include basic forms of support such as:
- Taking care of light housekeeping and cooking
- Grocery shopping, running errands, and arranging transport
- Offering gentle reminders to seniors about medications
- Respectfully supporting with personal care and bathing
- Monitoring seniors' well-being and building relationships
