Overview of Respite Care Services
Family caregivers play an important part in keeping seniors safe and comfortable. While some families believe that home care services are not necessary when family caregivers are in place, they still hold important benefits that enhance the lives of these caring individuals and their aging loved ones.
Respite Care Services Provides:
- Supervision during daytime or overnight hours
- Assistance with ADLs and IADLs that keep your loved one safe while you are away
- Companionship and sensory stimulation that prevent your loved one from feeling isolated
- An extra set of professional eyes and ears in the home to recognize progress or setbacks
- Stress reduction and decreased instances of depression for family caregivers
- Opportunities for family members to take care of their own needs
Salus Homecare Denver’s respite services allow family caregivers to comfortably spend time away from their loved ones. They might spend this time working, caring for their own family, attending medical appointments or simply relaxing. Salus Homecare Denver provides extremely flexible scheduling for families needing respite care, and our professional caregivers are available full time, part time or intermittently.
When family members return home after taking advantage of respite time, they often report feeling renewed, refreshed and ready to take on the challenges that come with meeting a loved one’s needs. These services often enhance the relationship between seniors and their family members, improving quality of life for all involved.
