Respite Care in Salem, OR and Surrounding Areas
Our respite care gives you a break so you can rest, recharge, or focus on other important matters.
Caregiving for a loved one can be a rewarding and bonding experience within a family, yet in even the best situations, the responsibility and ongoing routine can be stressful and tiring—especially when balanced with a job or caring for children. The daily stressors of life may potentially cause you a lapse on other responsibilities for yourself, your family, or even your loved one.
When family caregivers are emotionally drained, they are likely less effective at playing this critical role. Your loved one may even potentially begin to feel like they have become a burden on your life. Comfort Keepers of Salem, OR can provide respite care or temporary relief to those who care for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home. Because you wore tirelessly to provide care for your family, you deserve a break to recuperate every once in a while. Respite care of seniors is short term care that may be planned for events such as vacations, or may also be used for an emergency situation.
What is Respite Care?
Known in some countries as “short break” care, respite services provide planned short-term breaks for families and other unpaid caregivers who need time outside the home or to simply take a rest. Respite care helps support and maintain the primary caregiving relationship.Contact Us
How Comfort Keepers Can Help
Respite care services give you time to leave the home for a few hours or even a few days, knowing the one you care for is in good hands. This creates time to
- take care of the errands you never seem to have time for.
- catch up on your shopping.
- attend a support group meeting.
- visit doctor or dentist for routine care.
- give yourself a much-needed rest.
Comfort Keepers respite services can be scheduled for as little as a few hours a week. Additionally, around-the-clock care can be arranged so you can take a longer break to attend a wedding out of town, take a child to college, or go on a much-needed vacation.
