Rest and Relief Is Here
Loving your parent, sibling, spouse or loved one is no small feat. You know this, and so do we. You’ve sacrificed to serve in your role as family for the one you love, and that’s why you deserve time to rest and revive your spirits. Our companions offer that relief, allowing you to grab coffee with a friend, catch a movie with your spouse, or even take a much-needed nap. All the while, you can rest assured that your loved one is in the best of hands, allowing your mind, body and soul that small, essential vacation—even if it’s only a few hours each week.
Benefits of Respite
Watching over a loved one 24/7 can begin to wear on your physical and mental health. You may find yourself:
- Not eating right.
- Not sleeping well.
- Not feeling well.
Sometimes, resentment can build, prompting the family member to take out frustrations on the client. But this doesn’t have to be the case.
Our senior services cater to the family member’s mental and physical well-being. And when the family member is healthy, the client remains healthy, too. Respite will:
- Offer relief, downtime and escape.
- Prevent the buildup of resentment.
- Allow you to feel revived and refocused when you return.
How Respite Works
Depending on your needs, as well as those of your loved one, a respite worker will come to your home for a few hours. These visits could be once a week, or three times per week. While the respite homemaker tends to your loved one, you’re free to get away. You can use these hours to meet friends for lunch, attend a hair appointment, or even read a book in the backyard. The point is, this is your time to rest and recover.
