Taking Care of the Caregiver

Taking care of an elderly loved one offers many rewards, but can also take a toll on your personal life. Respite care services give you time to leave the home for a few hours knowing the one you care for is in good hands. Respite offers family caregivers the opportunity to take a break from their caregiving responsibilities and temporary relief from caring for individuals with various needs.

Like you, we at Caring Hearts Agency, Inc. know that some of the most valued people in our lives require special attention and dedicated care. Trying to provide that all by ourselves is certainly not easy; maybe even unsafe. Respite allows you to leave your family member or loved one in the hands of a trusted respite caregiver.

Caring for a loved one can certainly be rewarding and fulfilling; but it can also be overwhelming and all-consuming. Respite is offered in the home and helps reduce family stress — helping preserve the family unit, support family stability and prevent lengthy and costly out-of-home care. If you or a loved one need assistance we are here for you!

Alzheimer’s Respite

Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease can be time-consuming and physically and emotionally draining. Time off for the primary caregiver is critical to prevent burnout and relieve stress. Alzheimer’s Respite provides primary caregivers a much-needed break from their duties so that they can return rested and refreshed.

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Matthew 11:28
