Respite Care

Sometimes you just need a break or an extra set of hands for a few weeks. We can help! Our in-home care services are available for short-term periods and/or for just a few hours per week now and then while you take care of yourself and your family. Your loved one will receive the same great care regardless of how long or how frequently you use the service.

What can a caregiver help with?

A professional caregiver can provide the following:
  • Companionship
  • Socialization and social activities
  • Meal planning and preparation
  • Incidental transportation and errand running
  • Laundry and light housekeeping tasks
  • Medication reminders
  • Personal care support (bathing and grooming)
  • Incontinence care
  • Assistance with pet care

When and how often is care available?

We pride ourselves on offering flexible solutions. You can choose to have a caregiver come to the home during the day (from 1-7 days per week), stay overnight, or live-in. We also offer 24/7 awake live-in care if your parent needs constant monitoring. You don’t have to stick to just one type of care – we can help you create a custom plan that meets your needs.

What is the commitment required?

We don’t require long-term commitments so we can work with you as your situation evolves. Rest assured that if things change, we will do our very best to accommodate you and your family.

How much does it cost?

Rates will vary depending on which type of care you choose, and in some cases, where you are located. We charge the same rates for respite care as we do with our ongoing care services. With respite care, you won’t be required to put down a deposit up-front, but we do ask that the hours you request be prepaid. Just give us a call and we'd be happy to send you our rate sheet.

What if I need more help than I thought?

If respite care turns into an ongoing care situation, no problem! We’ll be happy to work with you to accommodate any new needs or issues that arise as your situation changes. Your care manager will be in frequent contact with you and able to answer questions and problem solve as needed. If you’re not sure right now whether respite or ongoing care is right for you, feel free to contact us or book a discovery call to have all your questions answered by one of our in-home care experts.
