Respite Care in Wayne, NJ and Surrounding Areas

The truth about being a family caregiver is that it’s a rewarding, yet mentally and physically demanding role. Your main concern is making sure that your loved one’s needs are accounted for. But, what about your needs? You may have noticed that your own health and wellness needs have fallen by the wayside. Managing your own diet and exercise, looking after your own well-being, and taking much-needed breaks are important parts of being the best family caregiver possible.

At Visiting Angels, we can provide the respite care that you need to finally take your own well-deserved break. Whether it’s a couple of hours or a couple of days, you can take the time that you need to recharge and recuperate without having to wonder about your loved one.

How Respite Care Helps

In order to find a caregiver that’ll fit your loved one’s needs and scheduling, Visiting Angels will work with you to match you with a care professional in your area. During the caregiver’s visit, you can do anything that you need to do to get your energy back to 100%. This could be anything from working to taking a much-needed vacation, to getting extra hours of sleep.

To help your loved one, our caregiver incorporates a variety of different services into their care. This includes dressing and bathing, transferring assistance, and other personal care needs. Also, our caregivers include meal preparation and planning as well as laundry and housekeeping. Your loved one will soon look forward to these visits and will surely put their minds at ease. If you’re feeling any anxiety or guilt about leaving, the relief on your loved one’s face will surely relieve any anxiety or guilt that you may have.
