Respite Care in Union
Respite care is the term used to refer to senior care services that give unpaid family caregivers a short-term break. Looking after a loved one is a 24/7 job, and if you don't have the opportunity to take time off on a regular basis, you may begin to feel burned out. At Visiting Angels® Union, our professional home care providers help family caregivers avoid burnout by making sure they have relief from their duties while also maintaining peace of mind about the safety and security of their loved one.
What is Respite Care?
As our respite care services are flexible, this type of care can take many different forms depending on your family's unique circumstances. For example, you might want to book caregiver visits for a few hours while you rest and relax, or for a few days or even weeks, so you can finally take a vacation. We can also create an ongoing schedule of caregiver visits that gives you regular relief from the demands of caregiving.
