Respite Care
Respite care offers family caregivers temporary relief from caring for individuals with various needs. As an essential part of an overall home care support strategy, respite care is offered in an individual’s home or in a variety of out-of-home settings for any length of time depending on the needs of the family. As a vital part of the continuum of services for families, Home Care Advantage respite caregivers can help reduce family stress, thereby helping to support and preserve your family unit.  You can be assured that your loved one is receiving the best care while you get the needed rest and relaxation that you deserve. 

  • Adult Respite - Helps ease stress on family members and primary caregivers by providing oversight and care to the dependent person in your home. With a competent, reliable caregiver on hand, families can feel free to leave for a specified period to attend to their own needs or those of their family. 

  • Alzheimer’s Respite Care - Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease can be overwhelmingly time-consuming and physically and emotionally-draining. Time off for the primary caregiver is needed to prevent burnout and relieve stress. Alzheimer's Respite Care services provide the primary caregiver with a break from their duties. Home Care Advantage understands that family caregivers occasionally need time for themselves to address their own personal interests and relationships, take vacations or business trips or simply have the opportunity to rest and renew the spirit.

  • Overnight - Overnight care and support to give you a worry-free night’s sleep, knowing that support and assistance are available when needed throughout the night. Services include assistance going to bed, including toileting and personal hygiene. Caregivers are awake all night and available to assist with after bedtime transfers, toileting and redirection of confused, agitated or wandering behaviors.

Respite care is offered on a short term basis to support family members or other caregivers when they need to take a break from care activities.

  • Toddlers – We know that keeping toddlers safe and happy while they explore the world around them can be exhausting.  Our caregivers understand their needs and are there to respond to their inquisitive questions and thoughts with love and care.
