What Are Respite Care Services?

Respite care services allow you to step away from your caregiving duties while knowing a professionally trained, experienced, and caring professional is on hand to ensure a senior loved one’s needs are fully met. It also means enhanced socialization for the older person and the opportunity for engaging and enjoyable activities while you’re gone. A win-win!

Respite care can range from just a few hours when you need a break to long-term care while you go out of town. It is most effective for both you and the older adult you love when scheduled regularly, allowing a bond to develop between the individual and caregiver and providing you with routine breaks from care.

Respite care services can include any or all of the following types of assistance:

  • Support for safe showers/baths, getting dressed, and other personal hygiene needs
  • Companionship for engaging in conversations, games, puzzles, exercise, hobbies, etc.
  • Assistance with walking and transfers
  • Medication reminders
  • Meal planning and prep
  • Light housekeeping and laundry
  • Transportation and accompaniment to fun outings, medical appointments, etc.
  • Specialized dementia care
  • And more
