Respite Care for Elderly Residents in Cape Girardeau and Southeast Missouri
Comfort Keepers of Cape Girardeau, MO's respite care for elderly loved one gives you a break and peace of mind knowing your loved one is being cared for
Caregiving can be a rewarding and bonding experience within a family, yet in even the best situations, the responsibility and ongoing routine can be stressful and tiring—especially when balanced with a job or caring for children. When family caregivers are emotionally drained, their care for elderly loved ones may be less effective. Comfort Keepers of Cape Girardeau, MO can provide respite care or temporary relief to those who care for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home.
What is Respite Care?
Known in some countries as “short break” care, respite services provide planned short-term breaks for families and other unpaid caregivers who need time outside the home or to simply take a rest. Respite services help to support and maintain the primary caregiving relationship.
How Comfort Keepers Can Help with Respite Care
Respite care for elderly individuals gives you time to leave the home for a few hours or even a few days, knowing the one you care for is in good hands. This creates time to:
- take care of the errands you never seem to have time for
- catch up on your shopping
- attend a support group meeting
- visit doctor or dentist for routine care
- give yourself a much-needed rest
Our respite care services can be scheduled for as little as a few hours a week. Additionally, around-the-clock care can be arranged so you can take a longer break to attend a wedding out of town, take a child to college, or go on a much-needed vacation. Care for elderly individuals when you need to get away is here, contact us online or call us at (573) 208-4188 to learn more.
