Sarasota's Choice in Respite Care Referrals

If you're the primary caregiver for an aging loved one, you may sometimes feel stressed or overwhelmed. It's only natural to feel that way. While taking care of the ones you love can be immensely rewarding, it can also be extraordinarily difficult to manage on your own. If you're managing a job, social obligations, and other pressing tasks at the same time, it can even seem impossible. That's why Visiting Angels Sarasota offers referrals for respite care services.  

What is Respite Care?

At Visiting Angels Sarasota, when we talk about respite care, we're talking about temporary caregiver services. These caregivers come in on an as-needed basis to help manage the care of your loved one. The caregivers we recommend for respite care are there to help ease your daily load so you're able to attend to other tasks. Whether you're attending a night class for a few months, going away on vacation, or your loved one simply requires a more advanced level of support than you can provide, respite care can help alleviate your daily life. 

Why Choose Respite Care?

Respite care isn't just good for you – it can also make a tremendous impact on your loved one's life, too. Having some time away from your caregiving duties can help you stay more alert, focused, and stress-free. There are many reasons why Sarasota families choose respite care, including: 

  • Reducing caregiver stress. When you're the primary caregiver for your loved one, it's not uncommon to feel isolated, depressed, or exhausted. Having a respite caregiver can help take away some of the pressure. 
  • Scheduling flexibility. Having a caregiver on standby means you can more easily manage your schedule, run errands, take time for yourself, and juggle a full-time job and other obligations. 
  • Help with declining family members. If you have an aging loved one whose health is declining, you may want respite care services to provide a more advanced level of care.
