Respite Care from a Personal Care Assistant in Bloomington, IN

A personal care assistant from Visiting Angels South Central Indiana can provide respite care for seniors and family caregivers in Columbus, Nashville, Bloomington, and the surrounding areas

Taking care of a loved one who needs your support to lead a quality lifestyle is one of the most unselfish things you can do. However, looking after a parent or family member with mobility issues, health problems or cognitive disorders like dementia is anything but easy. It is normal to feel like you need a break every now and then. When you need to take some time off from caregiving, we can help with respite care provided by a personal care assistant.

At Visiting Angels Bloomington IN, we understand that you want to be there for your loved one non-stop. But it is important to keep in mind that you need to care for yourself as well if you want to provide your parent or family member with the best possible care. Not taking care of your own needs may lead to health and emotional problems - and needless to say that a caregiver who is on the verge of a burnout may not be able to adequately look after someone with serious health issues or advanced care needs.

How Respite Care Can Help You and Your Senior Loved One

At Visiting Angels, we develop a personalized care plan for your loved one and match them with the most compatible personal care assistant. The assistant can visit your parent or relative's home for a few hours a day or several hours a week to allow you to attend to your other responsibilities - finish an important project for work, run errands, go on a vacation or just rest and restore your energy.

Your loved one's personal care assistant will make sure that they feel comfortable and safe at all times. In addition to providing companionship, our experts can offer assistance with a myriad of personal care activities, such as bathing, dressing, grooming, toileting, and transferring. They can help your loved one keep their house clean and tidy by offering light housekeeping, including vacuuming, dusting, cleaning bathrooms, organizing closets, and more. To ensure your parent or relative is eating a healthy diet, we also offer meal planning and preparation.

How To Get Started with Respite Care

Respite care can help you provide even better care for your loved one while also enabling you to put yourself first every now and then. To get started with our program, all you need to do is contact our office in Bloomington IN. We will match your loved one with a personal care assistant who is most suitable to provide them with the exact type of care they need for a happy and healthy lifestyle. Our home care services are extremely flexible, so we can offer care on an hourly basis or expand it at some point to include our other services, including companion care or dementia care.
