Respite care offers the support both seniors and their family caregivers need. If you are helping a loved one age in place in the Minneapolis, MN area, you may start to feel overwhelmed without the opportunity to take a break and experience feelings of burnout. Our care providers are available to step in and deliver high-quality care for your loved one while you experience the benefits of worry-free time off.
At Visiting Angels, we are passionate about improving the quality of life of our fellow community members. By helping family caregivers manage their priorities, we enable them to remain a solid source of support for their loved ones and be there when they need them most.
What is Respite Care?
If you're new to the concept of respite care, you may be wondering what differentiates this care type from our other home care programs. Through respite services, you'll continue performing most of the work of caregiving on your own. However, whenever you feel you could benefit from some self-care and time to yourself, we will be ready to take over your responsibilities and assist your loved one.
You can count on our care providers at Visiting Angels to offer professional support for your loved one no matter what their personal care needs look like. We are able to assist elderly adults living with dementia and Alzheimer's disease as well as those with more basic care needs related to personal care or companion care.
How Respite Care Helps Seniors
We won't only offer your loved one a helping hand with their daily routines. We will also engage with them on a social level and provide emotional support to prevent loneliness and isolation while you're taking time to re-energize.
