Respite Care
 
Respite care is a growing need for many families who are faced with the challenges that come with providing care for aging parents or other home-bound family members. As the supportive care provider, I will keep the client safe while the family member or primary caregiver has up to five hours of respite relief. Supportive care is also available to clients who have been hospitalized or who are currently living in a health care facility and who are transitioning from an independent lifestyle to assisted living. Other types of respite services include, but are not limited to: providing emotional support to the client and client‘s family, writing letters for the client, providing music, reading aloud to the client, sitting with family during the client’s last hours, assisting family with sorting of client’s personal belongings, and emotional support during arrangement of memorial services.
