In-Home Respite

 

Caring for a family member or friends can be stressful and overwhelming. As trained PSW's, our Respite Providers can care for your loved one while you take a break, run errands, or go to work. Services include:

  • Supervision: Your loved one may not require any personal care or medical assistance, however you may feel better knowing someone is there to keep an eye on them while you are away. Providers and clients can chat, read the paper, play games, or watch movies to pass the time. 

  • Personal Care: Assistance with toileting, bathing, dressing, and eating. Medication reminders. Assistance getting in and out of bed and chairs. 

  • Light housekeeping

  • Meal and snack preparation

Respite services can be scheduled weekly, or on an "as-needed" basis. Overnight requests can be accommodated, but depend on provider availability.
