Addressing Common Concerns with Respite Care

Although respite care can be highly beneficial to seniors and family caregivers, many families are nervous about trusting a stranger to care for a loved one. Here are some reasons why you should trust Senior Homecare by Angels to provide the in-home care your loved one needs.

At Senior Homecare by Angels, we understand that caring after your loved one can be stressful and overwhelming. In order to provide your parent with the best level of care, you need to take a break every once in a while, recharge your batteries and tend to your personal well-being. This is why we offer high-quality respite care services to seniors. Whether you need a helping hand with difficult or stressful care activities, our guidance and support in confusing situations, or just some time for yourself, we are here to help.

Keep in mind that in order to tend after your parent’s needs properly you need to take care of yourself first. If you are overwhelmed and stressed, you are more prone to making mistakes and overlooking some health issues. We understand that many family caregivers are hesitant to hire a professional caregiver. Some of them feel guilty about reducing their workload, while others worry about their loved one’s well-being and safety. Luckily, these concerns are either unfounded or easily addressed by hiring a high-quality home care agency like Senior Homecare by Angels.

Common Concerns About Respite Care                      

Can I afford respite services? 

Because respite care services are provided by the hour, you will have financial flexibility when scheduling care. In addition, our care coordinators can help you cut costs where possible in order to make our services more affordable.

Will respite care be scheduled in a way that works for my family?

Of course. Scheduling policies vary between different home care agencies. However, our caregivers will offer you options that fit your needs, routine and lifestyle.

What if my loved one has unique needs? 

Senior Homecare by Angels will take time to create a plan tailored to your parent’s specific care needs. We understand that every client has their own unique needs and schedule, so we’re committed to providing personalized senior care options for everyone we work with.

What happens in case my loved one needs specialized care?

If your parent needs assistance with personal activities, our caregivers can provide personal home care services to make sure they’re safe and comfortable. We also provide memory care if your loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or any other form of dementia.

How can I be sure my loved one is safe? 

Many family caregivers do not want to leave their parent in someone else’s care. That’s why at Senior Homecare by Angels, we perform background checks on caregivers before we hire them. In addition, you have the option of joining your loved one’s caregiver for the first few sessions. This way, you can have peace of mind knowing your loved one is in capable hands.
