Respite Care in Tuscaloosa
While you may be your loved one's primary caregiver, you don't have to be their only source of care. You can share the burden of caregiving with the respite care providers at Visiting Angels® Tuscaloosa. Our team is familiar with the challenges and circumstances family caregivers face, and we are constantly working to help these caregivers in our community sidestep the effects of burnout. With our help, you can have the chance to take time off from your duties without feeling guilty or worrying about your loved one. Knowing they're in safe hands will enable you to get the rest you need and continue caring for them to the best of your abilities.
What is Respite Care?
Respite care is different from the other types of care we provide in that it allows family caregivers to take the lead. Our care professionals at Visiting Angels Tuscaloosa play a complementary role and can step in to give family caregivers frequent breaks or longer vacations. These services can be scheduled at the convenience of the caregiver, whether ongoing care visits or short-term care is desired.
How Respite Care Helps Seniors in Tuscaloosa
Our services can help family caregivers in Tuscaloosa avoid burning the candle at both ends, which can otherwise have disastrous outcomes. As a result of getting the rest they need and having the opportunity to take a more balanced approach to caregiving, they can actually help their loved ones for longer without feeling they are in an unsustainable situation.
Professional care can also be beneficial for elderly adults. All too often, seniors become socially isolated and crave the opportunity to interact with others. Through our services, they can find a new companion in their professional care provider and look forward to building a rewarding relationship and taking part in stimulating conversations.
Our services often include help with tasks like:
- Bathing or showering
- Dressing and grooming
- Remembering medication schedules
- Cooking and cleaning
- Engaging in fun activities
- Going to doctors' appointments
- Running errands
