Respite Care in Philadelphia, PA and other surrounding areas

Trusted respite care allows family caregivers the chance to rest, relax and focus on other important matters, allowing them to recharge while another professional takes on their role for the time being.

Not everyone is ready to outsource the caregiving of their elders to professionals. Some feel that caregiving within a family can be both a rewarding and bonding experience. However, even in the best of situations, family caregivers can reach a point of exhaustion when they are in need of a rest, especially if they have a job and kids to juggle each day.

An emotionally-drained caregiver does not have the same quality and level of commitment to the role, and that can affect the seniors. To step in for family caregivers when they feel tired, Comfort Keepers provides respite care at home. This is a temporary relief for family caregivers to give timely respite to the people giving their all to take care of their loved ones.

What is Respite Care?

Respite Care is referred to as a Short Break in some countries. These are planned breaks afforded to families and other unpaid caregivers who are tasked with taking care of a senior round the year so that they can rest or enjoy time outside of the home. This helps maintain a healthy relationship between the primary caregiver and the senior.

How Comfort Keepers can help?

With respite care, you can leave the house without having to worry about the one you care about, knowing well that they are safe and in good hands. This lets the primary caregiver have time to:

  • Attend a meeting related to the elder
  • Visit a dentist, a doctor or make any other routine appointment
  • Do shopping
  • Relaxing and winding down

At Comfort Keepers, we recognize the need for respite services to be tailored to your specific needs. These services can be scheduled for as little as a few hours and may stretch to as much a time as you want. Respite care is usually designed to act as a stop-gap solution to let you enjoy your life and attend other important activities as well as letting a professional take care of your elder. If you feel the need for respite care, contact us and we would be happy to help, provide additional information and even schedule a free in-home consultation.
