Respite Care in Tolland
When a senior requires assistance, they often turn to their family members and close friends for support. However, when these unpaid family caregivers need help, they don't always know where to look. Respite care delivered by Visiting Angels® Tolland allows these overwhelmed individuals to take a temporary break from their duties while knowing their loved ones are safe and secure.
Caregiving can be a demanding task, especially when the person you are assisting is a parent, grandparent, or spouse. You may find that your role is more mentally and emotionally taxing than you once believed it would be. Additionally, you may feel physically exhausted without any chance for rest in sight.
These are all signs that burnout is approaching and that a break is necessary. We can help you find the relief you need to regain your energy and enjoy a more balanced approach to helping your loved one live at home.
What is Respite Care?
In contrast to other types of senior home care offered by our local agency, respite care tends to be delivered on a temporary basis. These short-term services are often just what family caregivers need to enjoy an afternoon off or even go on a long-planned vacation. Visiting Angels Tolland matches families with professional care providers who can step in and offer assistance for the senior while the family caregiver enjoys a guilt-free break.
