Respite Care in Sussex County
Elderly adults in need of a helping hand typically first turn to their family members or close friends. Many family caregivers find the act of helping a loved one to be incredibly rewarding. However, it can also be challenging and exhausting to the point of burnout. Respite care is designed to help give unpaid family caregivers time off so they can protect their well-being while continuing to take the lead in their loved one's care. Our professional care providers are ready to support family caregivers throughout the Sussex County area.
At Visiting Angels® Milton, we understand many families aren't quite sure what respite care is or whether it's the right option for their situation. We're here to answer your questions so you can finally get the rest and relief you deserve.
What is Respite Care?
Wondering what respite care looks like in practice? This category of care often takes the form of care visits for a short-term period or as part of a temporary plan. One of our care providers will take over your duties for a set amount of time so you can take a guilt-free vacation, focus your attention on other relationships in your life, or simply rest, relax, and take care of yourself.
