Respite Care in Worcester
When you feel constantly exhausted by your responsibility of caring for a parent, grandparent, or spouse, respite care can help. The team at our local senior care agency in Worcester understands the various challenges unpaid family caregivers face as they attempt to juggle their many duties. We can help ensure your loved one always has the care they need while also providing you with the ability to take time off from your responsibilities. Rather than feeling overwhelmed all the time, you can have the opportunity to rest, recharge, and be the attentive caregiver your loved one deserves.
What is Respite Care?
Our respite care services can take different forms depending on the different needs of families in the local community. At Visiting Angels® Worcester, we strive to remain flexible for our clients and take a personalized approach to the process of planning and arranging care. This means you can choose to have a caregiver assist you with your responsibilities on a weekly, biweekly, or monthly basis with regularly scheduled care visits. Or, you may opt for a short-term care plan that provides temporary relief from your duties so you can go on vacation or turn your attention to other priorities in your life.
How Respite Care Helps Seniors in Worcester
Much as we take a flexible approach to scheduling care, we are also flexible about the services our care providers deliver. For example, we can accommodate advanced caregiving requirements related to dementia or mobility limitations. We can also provide more basic forms of support, including companion care and personal care.
Types of assistance that are common with this care type include:
- Running errands to the grocery store or pharmacy
- Preparing meals according to dietary requirements
- Assisting with dressing and grooming
- Offering reliable reminders about prescription schedules
- Socializing and engaging in uplifting conversation
