Respite Care in Brunswick
When your role as a family caregiver starts to negatively impact your personal well-being, it may be time to take a break to rest and recharge. Respite care services are available for families in Brunswick and nearby communities thanks to the compassionate care professionals staffed by Visiting Angels® Southeast Georgia. We understand the challenges of caring for a loved one, and we are determined to give family caregivers in the local area support and confidence about their ability to continue caring for a loved one.
What is Respite Care?
Respite care is designed to give family caregivers a break from their busy schedule specifically when it is most desired. This may be when a family caregiver wants to take a vacation, or when they need some time off in order to focus on other priorities in their lives. Care is delivered according to a short-term care plan and provided on a temporary basis for a set period of time. Depending on the situation, this could be for a few hours, days, or even weeks. When more frequent support is requested, we can also build a schedule of ongoing care visits that offers regular respite for those who need it.
How Respite Care Helps Seniors in Brunswick
