Most Common Questions About Respite Care For Portsmouth
We know you have questions about this type of home care—what it is and what it can do for you, so we’ll get right to some of the most often-asked queries:
Just what exactly is respite care?
Respite care, as it sounds, is provided to give the family caregiver a break from what can be the overwhelming daily routine of caring for their loved one. Unlike our other home care services, our respite program from Visiting Angels Norfolk, Portsmouth and Suffolk is designed to act almost in reverse—the family caregiver remains the primary caregiver, while our caregiver picks up all the extras he/she can’t or doesn’t want to do. Sometimes, of course, respite is literally just so the family caregiver can get away entirely to rest and recharge.
Will you be able to accommodate our scheduling needs?
Short answer, yes! Our services would be worthless if our hours were not flexible. That’s why we offer a full range of possibilities, including:
Will you be able to take care of the different types of needs my loved one has?
We understand that each individual has unique needs. That’s why our home care in Portsmouth is personalized. We’ll develop a plan based solely on your loved one’s needs, and we’ll pull from our wide variety of home care services.
Is respite affordable?
Every family’s situation is different. However, at Visiting Angels Norfolk, Portsmouth and Suffolk, we work hard to provide home care that is accessible to as many people as possible. By personalizing services, offering hourly rates, and flexible payment options, our costs are significantly less expensive than assisted living and provide much greater control for families.
