Respite Care

Caregiving for an elderly, ill, or disabled family member is a demanding job and no one is equipped to do it alone. Finding respite care services can provide a vital break. Respite care provides temporary relief for a primary caregiver, enabling you to take a much-needed break from the demands of caregiving a sick, aging, or disabled family member. Whether it’s for just a few hours a week or an extended vacation, seeking respite care can help ease the burden of family caregiving and help to relieve stress, restore your energy, and promote balance in your life. It can also prevent you from becoming exhausted, isolated, or even burned out. Respite care can benefit the person you’re caring for, too, providing them with variety, stimulation, and a welcome change of routine.

What is in-home respite care?

In-home respite care refers to a short time of rest or relief for the family caregiver. It provides a break from the typical care routine – allowing the caregiver some down time while the person under care continues to receive professional care from qualified individuals.

Respite care can provide the family caregiver with:

  • A chance to spend time with other friends and family, or to just relax.
  • Time to take care of errands such as shopping, exercising, getting a haircut or going to the doctor
  • Comfort or peace of mind knowing that the person needing care is spending time with another caring individual.

A Guardian Angel caregiver, assigned with respite care plays multiple care roles providing personal care, companion care, light meal preparation, limited homemaking etc.

Planning for Respite Care?

Respite care need not be an emergency arrangement. As a matter of fact, most cases, it can be planned in advance.

Before you engage a caregiver, it is important to know that your caregiver and Guardian Angel HomeCare has a clear understanding of the care needs of your loved ones. It is in this regard that Guardian Angel has developed a respite care checklist and also requires familiarisation with the patient, while the family caregiver is around. Guardian Angel will study your care needs and then identify a suitable caregiver for you.

With Guardian Angel, you can be assured that the caregiver assigned is specially trained for homecare, first-aid CPR certified, medically screened for infectious diseases and also background verified thorugh third party.
