Respite Care

Everyone needs a break. If you are a caregiver, you may need a break from caregiving tasks.

No matter how much you love those under your care, challenges of caregiving can be exhausting and often depressing. As a family caregiver, you need a break from your daily care giving routine to get that much needed relaxation or to attend a wedding or have that much cherished holiday. 

Thanks to in-home respite care from Guardian Angel HomeCare, help is at hand. The respite can be for a few hours or few days to a week depending on your particular needs.

 

What is in-home respite care?

            

In-home respite care refers to a short time of rest or relief for the family caregiver. It provides a break from the typical care routine – allowing the caregiver some down time while the person under care continues to receive professional care from qualified individuals. 

Respite care can provide the family caregiver with:

  • A chance to spend time with other friends and family, or to just relax.
  • Time to take care of errands such as shopping, exercising, getting a haircut or going to the doctor
  • Comfort or peace of mind knowing that the person needing care is spending time with another caring individual.

A Guardian Angel caregiver, assigned with respite care plays multiple care roles providing personal care, companion care, light meal preparation, limited homemaking etc.

 

Planning for Respite Care?

Respite care need not be an emergency arrangement. As a matter of fact, most cases, it can be planned in advance.

Before you engage a caregiver, it is important to know that your caregiver and Guardian Angel HomeCare has a clear understanding of the care needs of your loved ones. It is in this regard that Guardian Angel has developed a respite care checklist and also requires familiarisation with the patient, while the family caregiver is around. Guardian Angel will study your care needs and then identify a suitable caregiver for you.

With Guardian Angel, you can be assured that the caregiver assigned is specially trained for homecare, first-aid CPR certified, medically screened for infectious diseases and also background verified thorugh third party.
