Respite Care for Seniors in Washington, DC

Learn how respite care from Visiting Angels provides relief and support for seniors and family caregivers in Washington, DC

Caring for an elderly loved one can be difficult. Although taking on caregiving responsibilities is a noble and selfless act, you also have to balance it with other priorities in your life, such as your family, your career and your own needs. In some cases, you may not be equipped to provide the support your loved one needs in order to remain in their own home. In times like these, you could use a helping hand.

Respite care from Visiting Angels Washington DC can be a valuable resource for both seniors and family caregivers. Our caregivers can provide short-term or temporary caregiving visits, making it possible for you to take time away from caregiving duties while ensuring your loved one continues to receive the care they need.

What is Respite Care?

Respite care involves temporary visits from a professional caregiver in order to offset some of the caregiving duties from the primary caregiver, which is usually a family member. While in most cases, our caregivers take on the lion's share of caregiving duties, respite services are provided in cases where family caregivers are performing most of this work on their own.

Who Benefits from Respite Services?

While respite care is primarily provided for the benefit of the care recipient, we also aim to give primary caregivers temporary relief, Family caregivers are at high risk of physical and mental exhaustion that is commonly referred to as "caregiver burnout."
