Respite Care in Omaha
Caring for a loved one often equals the opportunity to help ensure they are comfortable as they grow older. As much as you may enjoy being by your loved one's side, you may also struggle to be able to take time off and look after your own needs. With respite care, you can change this situation. The compassionate care providers at Visiting Angels® Omaha realize that being an unpaid family caregiver can be physically exhausting as well as mentally and emotionally difficult. We are here to help you get the break you need and remain the wonderful caregiver your loved one deserves.
What is Respite Care?
Family caregivers can schedule respite care visits from our local agency whenever they feel a bit overwhelmed by their busy schedule or the nature of their responsibilities. Our care providers are able to take over the family caregiver's duties for a set period of time, usually a few days or weeks. As a result, the family caregiver can enjoy having some alone time without feeling guilty or like they've compromised their loved one's care.
Of course, we are also ready to help family caregivers who need support on a more frequent basis. Care visits can be scheduled regularly for those who feel their current schedule and situation is unmanageable. That way, they can look forward to regular time off for self-care.
