Respite Care in St. Louis
Helping a loved one through the journey of aging may be one of the most rewarding things you do in life. However, it may also be one of the most draining. One way to ensure you have the chance to replenish your energy and remain a dedicated family caregiver is by setting up visits from a professional respite care provider. At Visiting Angels® St. Louis South, we are proud to offer the flexible, comprehensive services family caregivers in the local area need to achieve a more balanced approach to caregiving and avoid becoming burned out by their responsibilities.
What is Respite Care?
As a form of senior home care, respite care differs from other care types in a couple of ways. This category of care has been specifically developed to relieve family caregivers of their duties on a short-term basis. This means we connect family caregivers with professional care providers who can take over their role temporarily. The family caregiver can then take a much-needed vacation, spend time with their friends and other family members, and experience some self-care and alone time, all without worrying about their loved one's safety or well-being.
How Respite Care Helps
By helping family caregivers, we also help the loved ones they are constantly working to support. Our care providers are fully committed to meeting seniors' needs by delivering care with compassion and respect. All of our services are customized to the unique preferences and living circumstances of the care recipient and can be adapted to their normal routine at home.
Types of assistance we often deliver include:
- Helping out with personal care tasks such as bathing
- Transporting care recipients to their doctors' appointments
- Reminding seniors when they need to take medications
- Going to the grocery store and preparing meals
- Preventing feelings of loneliness or isolation through companionship
