Here at Visiting Angels, we understand that taking care of a loved one can be stressful and exhausting. This is why we provide high-quality respite care to families living in Woodbridge, Milford, Cheshire, Branford, North Haven and surrounding communities in Connecticut. Whether you need to take time off to take care of your own responsibilities or go on a vacation, you can do so knowing that your parent is in capable hands of our trained caregivers. Interim home care gives you the opportunity to reduce stress and take a break from caregiving duties.
In order to provide the best care for your parent, you need to take care of yourself first. Keep in mind that stress can affect your health and weaken your immune system, thus making you prone to chronic diseases. Sharing caregiving responsibilities with our home care providers can improve your quality of life and allow you to take better care of your parent.
Here at Visiting Angels New Haven, we offer three types of part-time care: temporary, part-time and supportive. If you need to finish a work project, attend some school function or simply take a vacation, you might benefit from our temporary respite care. On the other hand, our part-time respite care is scheduled on a regular basis so that the family caregiver can have a regularly scheduled break. If you feel like you can’t meet your loved one’s needs on your own, we offer you our supportive respite care. You will share your caregiving responsibilities with our caregiver, thus making sure your parent receives the right level of care.
Simply call Visiting Angels New Haven and we will schedule a free consultation with you and your loved one at their home. Our representatives will talk to you and your parent about their needs, wishes, goals, and requirements, and create a personalized care plan based on those. Of course, this plan is not set in stone and can be altered as the client’s needs change.
When we have created a customized plan, you will meet with several caregivers from Visiting Angels. This way you and your parent will be able to choose the most compatible caregiver on your own.
Each and every one of our caregivers have gone through a comprehensive background and criminal history check. Our home care providers are not only highly trained, but they also possess skills such as compassion, honesty, patience, and respect.
