What is Respite Care?

It is estimated that nearly 44 million Americans care for elderly parents and/or relatives. This responsibility can be fulfilling and rewarding as well as demanding and stressful. Often these caregivers have jobs and families of their own. This non-stop care-taking can affect their physical health as well as be both mentally and emotionally draining. To be an effective and patient caregiver one must take care of oneself. No matter how much we love the people we are caring for and may want to care for them, it is still necessary to have breaks.

Wiser Home Care Services’ Respite Care can help. We provide the in-home Respite Care so the family can take care of other responsibilities and obligations or just have some down time to recharge.

Wiser Home Care Services can be there overnight or just a few hours a week so you can:
  • Run errands
  • Get some exercise
  • Spend time with friends
  • Make a doctor or hair appointment
  • Get some sleep
  • Go shopping
  • Have help at medical appointments
  • Attend meetings or activities
  • Enjoy some quiet time

Respite Care Services give you a chance to leave home knowing that your loved one is with a professional, well-trained caregiver. Setting up Respite Care is easy, it can be a few hours a week to run errands, or 24-hour care so you can take a vacation or go on a business trip.

At Wiser Home Care Services we know it is important to you to have great care for your loved one. We can help you do that.
