Respite Care: Giving Family Caretakers a Much Needed Break
Learn more about our loving respite care in Spearfish, SD
Caring for a loved one is often a point of personal pride for family members. Many people feel it is their duty and responsibility to do so, even at the expense of their own personal free time, health, and finances. At Comfort Keepers serving Spearfish, SD we understand that family members want to take part in their loved one’s elderly care. That is why we offer respite care services to help during interim periods when even the most able caregiver needs a break.
Respite care, or "short break care," allows family caretakers to take time off for their own personal needs on an occasional or scheduled break. This allows you a chance to focus on your own needs and avoid burnout and the physical and mental health complications that can stem from it. Our services can free up time for your family caretaker to take a day trip, go shopping, spend time with friends and family, take a vacation an much more. Rest easy knowing your loved one is the trained and capable hands of our respite care providers.
When you begin working with our agency, we will make sure that there is a strong understanding of your loved one’s current routine and needs. Our caregivers will work to make sure your loved one’s day to day activities are undisturbed while also providing for safety and health. Some of the services we provide include:
- Meal preparation and feeding
- Bathing and dressing
- Toileting and incontinence care
- Light housekeeping and laundry
- Transportation assistance
- Mobility and positioning help
- Companionship and monitoring
- Medication reminders
Additionally, your loved one’s temporary caregiver will be closely vetted and trained to ensure peace of mind for both you and your loved one. We understand that stepping back and taking time for yourself can be stressful in and of itself. Our highly trained and compassionate staff are bonded, insured, licensed to drive and have undergone stringent background checks.
