Juggling caregiving and my other commitments can be exhausting.
Caring for a loved one with a health problem, disability, or the frailty of aging can be both rewarding and challenging, satisfying and stressful. Periodic “time off” gives both the caregiver and loved one a change of pace and chance to recharge. It also helps families attend to other work and family commitments..
Some families want regularly scheduled respite support - while others call on us for a one time need. Some need coverage during a business trip or vacation, while others need help after a hospital or rehab stay.
How Respite Support works
We will work with you to arrange the support you need. Our flexible options include hourly or overnight
in-home coverage – as well as out-of-home
Initial Meeting: Together, we'll develop a plan for in-home or out-of home respite support. You let us know the services you're looking for and the extent to which you want to be involved in the hiring process.
Hiring: We often have staff members who are suitable to your request, or we may need to recruit specifically for you. We always strive to make a match that makes you feel very comfortable. Our aim is to have the same staff person provide respite support each time you need it.
Billing: Services are billed bi-weekly on an hourly or overnight basis. We will direct you to public sources of funding if appropriate. Many individuals and families pay for the support themselves or use a combination of benefits, public, and private funds.
