Respite Care in Wilmington
When relief from caregiving is what you need, respite care from Visiting Angels® Wilmington is the answer. Caring for a loved one is a demanding task, and many family caregivers underestimate the toll it will take on their mental and emotional well-being as well as their physical health. The best way to preserve your ability to continue to care for your loved one is to take a step back and give yourself time to rest and recharge. Fortunately, you can always count on the compassionate, capable, and professional care providers at our local care agency to assist your loved one while you enjoy a well-deserved break.
What is Respite Care?
Many family caregivers don't even realize they can take advantage of respite care services to gain more balance in their lives and their relationship with their loved one in the Wilmington area. If you're unfamiliar with this form of care, the most important thing to keep in mind is that it is generally delivered as a temporary measure or on a short-term basis. This differentiates it from the other home care programs we offer, which typically take the form of long-term care plans and regularly scheduled care visits. Of course, we can also have our respite care providers visit your loved one on an ongoing basis if you want to schedule frequent breaks for yourself.
