Does the possibility of taking a break from your caregiving duties sound too good to be true? If your loved one constantly relies on your support for their daily well-being, you may be unable to take time off regularly. With the respite care services available through our local care agency in the South Elgin area, you can finally take steps to live a more balanced lifestyle while still caring for your loved one.
At Visiting Angels® South Elgin, we know unpaid family caregivers often push themselves to the brink of burnout. Our goal is to prevent this from happening. That way, these hardworking individuals can protect their own well-being while also ensuring their loved ones stay safe and sound at home.
What is Respite Care?
Other types of in-home care put a professional care provider in charge of the senior’s needs. In contrast, respite care from Visiting Angels South Elgin enables family caregivers to remain in the lead and continue conducting the majority of caregiving duties on their own. They can then schedule visits from a care professional as needed, whether that’s for a temporary break, short-term vacation, or on a regular basis.
With these services, we’ve developed a crucial support system for family caregivers. Rather than feeling they’re stretching themselves too thin, they can take time off to rest, relax, and even pursue other ambitions and interests. All the while, they can maintain total peace of mind that they’ve put their loved one in the caring hands of a professional who is invested in helping them maintain their quality of life.
How Respite Care Helps Seniors
We don’t limit respite care to a specific list of services. Instead, we’ll be able to leverage the full spectrum of care available through our care agency to help your loved one age in place.
Examples of some of our most popular services include:
- Dignified aid with bathing
- Help with cooking and cleaning
- Social interaction and dedicated companionship
- Reminders about medication schedules
- Support with walking and mobility
