Respite Care in Raleigh, NC and Surrounding Areas

Visiting Angels of Raleigh, NC understands the stress of taking care of a loved one. Our respite care allows family caregivers to de-stress.

The best way for you to show your love for your loved one is to care for them. While being the main family caregiver is the most rewarding thing that you can ever do, it is also considered the most demanding role in the world. We understand that caregiving can get overwhelming and that you can forget about your own needs.

Experiencing Caregiver Burn-Out Is Normal

What you are experiencing is normal. Experiencing burn-out cannot be good. After all, how can you take care of your elderly loved one if you need help in the first place? This is where Visiting Angels of Raleigh comes in. Our caregivers will be the ones to take over, so you can to attend to your personal needs or if you need to take a breather. There is nothing wrong with wanting to take time off from being a family caregiver. What is selfish is if you just walk out from your role and let your loved one fend for themselves alone.

The Types of Services That They Provide

When opting for our respite care program, our care coordinators will match your loved one with the right caregiver who can provide them with the support that they need.  Our caregivers can visit your loved one for a few hours, days, or weeks depending on their needs. They provide different services such as bathing, dressing, mobility, and feeding. They also provide companionship to your loved one so that they will not feel lonely, especially if you are away attending to your needs.

But more than providing support to your elderly loved one, part of our program is to provide respite care to your entire family so that you can attend to your other needs. While our caregivers are taking care of your loved one, you can use your free time to run errands or catch on some sleep.
