What is Respite Care?
Respite care is short term care for a senior or other person who needs assistance with daily living. Whether in a community or at home, care is provided on a temporary basis while a caretaker is on vacation or indisposed due to surgery or illness.
If you are caring for a loved one in your own home and they require your attention around the clock, you will love the Respite Care Services we offer. Being able to go out – get away from the constant demands on your time and energy – knowing that your family member is completely cared for – is a huge gift.

There is research indicating that when a caregiver receives some relief from their constant care duties, the family member is usually able to remain in the home for much longer.
Our respite care providers are fully trained in caring for patients who have Alzheimer’s and dementia, as well as all other levels of caregiving.
Caring for a loved one who has Alzheimer’s can really drain one, both physically and emotionally. When a respite care provider who is experienced in caring for patients with Alzheimer’s can give you some time to yourself, away from the taxing care duties, it gives you time to refresh and relax.
As a caregiver, when you have the financial resources, respite care is a highly recommended way to get a mental and physical break from the rigors of taking care of a loved one. You should not feel guilty about needing a break, as long as you are confident in the quality of the respite care provider.
Angel Hands At Home Care gives you the best options for taking care of your family member while giving you the time and space you need in order to take a vacation, or just a couple of days break from your caregiving responsibilities.
