Respite Care for Families Throughout Springfield, MO and Neighboring Communities

Visiting Angels Offers Respite Care to Families in Springfield, Nixa, Ozark, Republic, and Surrounding Areas

Caregiving is a stressful and highly demanding job, and no one can do it all without help. Just like the person receiving long-term care, a caregiver also needs attention and support to maintain their own well-being and health.

Respite care gives family caregivers the chance to take a short break from their important duties, and it’s a good way for an overworked family member to recharge, relax, and regroup. When a family looks to Visiting Angels of Springfield for home care services, they can relieve stress, renew themselves, and restore balance to their hectic life. Senior care agencies can give families a bit of freedom, while their loved one gets the care they need in a caring, safe, and professional environment.

How Does Respite Care Help?

If you or someone you know is facing the challenge of caring for a loved one alone, our respite care can offer a break, stress relief, and balance to your life. Providing care every day for family or friends may be difficult, but there are options and care strategies you may not be aware of. It’s best to consider all the options to provide the best care for your loved ones and yourself.

Caring for an aging loved one can be rewarding, but it can be very challenging at times. Our caregivers understand the challenges that come with caring for relatives at home, and they also understand that caregivers are sometimes unavailable for various reasons.

Whether it’s a vacation, an upcoming business trip, or the need for a short break, our home care providers can help families get a break from their daily routine. The overworked family member gets some much-needed downtime, while their loved one can benefit from increased social engagement and support from a nurturing, safe source.

How to Get Started Today

Whether you’re feeling a little burnt out or you’re getting frustrated with providing care, now is the right time to consider in-home care. You need to take care of yourself, too. Respite care provides the break you need.

It’s easy to get started. You’ll get in touch with one of our experienced care coordinators who will match your loved one with the right caregiver for them. We offer respite care on an hourly basis, so you can choose the frequency and scope of care. Our home care services are flexible, so your loved one can always get more engaged care in the future. We also offer companion care, personal care, and specialized care for Alzheimer’s or dementia.

Everyone Deserves a Break

Unless someone is a superhero, they can’t care for someone else all the time. It’s important for family caregivers to be realistic about their ability to do the job, for their own sake and that of their loved one. When someone feels overwhelmed, there’s no shame in seeking help. Our home care providers give families a sense of refreshment and revitalization that can help them feel mentally and physically whole. Our elder care services help family caregivers be better parents, spouses, and people.
