Respite Care in Florence
When a loved one needs care, they may turn to you. But where do you turn when you need assistance with your caregiving responsibilities? The purpose of respite care is to help ensure family caregivers in the Florence area always have a support system in place. At Visiting Angels® Northern Kentucky, we know firsthand just how difficult it can be to help a loved one continue living at home. We are here to support you with your responsibilities and enable you to take time off as needed.
Family caregivers who do not have the opportunity to reach out for assistance often endure the severe effects of caregiver burnout. When you are exhausted on a mental and emotional level in addition to a physical one, you simply can't give your loved one the empathetic support they deserve. We aim to prevent caregiver burnout and make it possible for family caregivers to enjoy the rewards of caregiving without overlooking their own needs for self-care.
What is Respite Care?
Because respite care is different from other forms of senior care, families are often confused about how it works. These services are provided on a short-term basis through a temporary schedule of care visits. In other words, a care professional can step in to take over a family caregiver's duties for a set period of time, whether a few hours or a few weeks. Our flexible approach to scheduling ensures family caregivers can have a break whenever they feel they could benefit from time off.
