Respite Care

Anyone with a loved one who has lost their independence due to a sudden event, injury, or to progressively declining health knows how overwhelming it can be. The daily responsibilities of caring for a loved one can take an exhausting toll, leaving the caregiver drained, overwhelmed or stretched to their limit. Caregiving can eventually take a toll on family members as in addition to their current responsibilities, they are now a caregiver.

Whether down the street or across the country, family caregivers likely have obligations that prevent them from physically being with their loved one to provide for all their needs at all times. And at Visiting Angels St. Petersburg / Largo, we understand that conflict. We can help find a respite care caregiver for your loved one while also providing you with peace of mind.

What is Respite Care?

Respite care helps primary caregivers recharge and care for themselves by maintaining a healthy lifestyle balance. It provides relief that helps keep them physically, mentally and emotionally healthy.

Respite is essential for every primary caregiver. It provides caregivers the necessary time off from caregiving to do a little something for themselves. Whether it’s a visit to the hairdresser, a dinner date with friends, or a weekend getaway, respite care provides caregivers the opportunity to take time to care for themselves with peace of mind knowing their loved one will be well taken care of in their absence.

Respite care services can help you and your loved one by providing:

  • Social activities and outings
  • Friendly conversation
  • Personal care
  • Bathing assistance
  • Dressing assistance
  • Transferring assistance
  • Light housekeeping
  • Simple chores
  • Healthy meal preparation

… and more.

When caring for a loved one, it is important for a primary caregiver to maintain their identity as a loving daughter, son, niece, nephew, husband, wife or friend. Respite care can help by allowing the caregiver to maintain the loving atmosphere they and their loved one deserve.
