Respite Care

If someone you love needs help, you may feel compelled to do it yourself. Sometimes, this comes from a sense of responsibility to care for someone who once took care of you. As beautiful and rewarding as it can be to offer this kind of love and support, it can also take a toll on your own health and well-being. 

Full-time or even part-time caregiving can be time-consuming and stressful. To be your best as a caregiver—and to be able to uphold your other responsibilities in life—it’s essential to rest and take care of yourself. A Senior Helpers caregiver can step in to offer you a break while allowing your loved one to maintain their established routines at home.

We can take over for a few hours, days, or weeks to give you time to:

  • Run errands
  • Go to work
  • Spend time with your family
  • Make your own doctor’s or dentist’s appointments
  • Take a vacation or a weekend getaway
  • Spend some much-needed time alone

Sometimes, all you need is a little break from caregiving to restore your energy, relieve stress, and balance other aspects of your life. You can return to your caregiving duties feeling refreshed and empowered, knowing that in your absence, your loved one was well cared for by our professional team. 

Our Respite Care Services include:

  • Assistance with activities of daily living
  • Personal care (bathing, grooming, dressing, etc)
  • Shopping and meal preparation
  • Light housekeeping
  • Laundry
  • Companionship and conversation
