Respite Care: Most Common Questions
Our team at Visiting Angels Norfolk, Portsmouth and Suffolk put together a list of some of the most common questions we’re asked about our respite care:
What is it exactly and how does it work?
Respite care is care that is designed to provide a kind of relief valve for primary family caregivers. You continue in your role but we take on the additional home care responsibilities you either can’t or just don’t want to. Of course, it can also be a literal break for you, if you need to get away for any period of time.
What kinds of things can you help with specifically?
The most important aspect of our home care, including respite, is the fact that we personalize our services to meet your loved one’s unique needs. Additionally, we match them with an angel caregiver whose personality and temperament will make a good fit. The kinds of tasks are extremely varied--from personal/essential care help like bathing, grooming, incontinence aid, to basic companionship, conversation, and housekeeping chores.
We can also provide respite related to specialty in-home care like Alzheimer’s care, dementia care, end-of-life care, palliative care, and more.
Is it affordable?
Because our care is personalized, and we offer flexible payment options and hourly rates, in-home care is far less expensive than assisted living. Furthermore, the customization and flexibility we’ve built in allows a greater degree of control over your costs and therefore tends to make our services much more accessible than you might think.
What about scheduling? What if I need help during odd hours?
None of our excellent home care services would be worth a darn if we weren’t available when you needed us. And we realize that’s not going to be just 9-5. That’s why we offer a full range of scheduling options, including:
