Respite care can be a lifeline for family caregivers and their loved ones. This type of home care typically involves short-term or temporary caregiving visits. These visits make it possible for family caregivers to take time away from unpaid caregiving duties—without compromising the quality of care received by their loved ones.
At Visiting Angels®, we know how difficult caring for a loved one can be. We also know the positive difference respite care can make. If you provide care to a spouse, parent, or grandparent and you need outside assistance, our caregivers are ready to lend a helping hand.
What is Respite Care?
Respite care is a support system for family caregivers. With other types of in-home care, professional caregivers perform the majority of caregiving duties. Respite services, meanwhile, are provided in cases where family caregivers are performing most of this work on their own.
If you’re one of the 40+ million Americans who acts as a family caregiver, this type of care can make a world of difference. Family caregivers are at high risk of physical and mental exhaustion that the term “caregiver burnout” is now commonplace.
In-home respite care can substantially reduce your risk of burnout and make caring for your loved one more manageable. If you need time to rest and recuperate, Visiting Angels can provide care services to your loved one while you spend time caring for yourself. If the daily or weekly routine of caregiving has become overwhelming, we can perform regular respite visits to reduce your workload.
In-home respite care from Visiting Angels can include a wide range of caregiving services.
In addition to standard services like companion care and personal care, our local agencies offer a number of specialized services, including Alzheimer’s care and dementia care. If your loved one requires specialized care, respite visits can be provided by skilled caregivers with expertise in these areas.
Some of the most common tasks performed by our respite caregivers include:
Assistance with activities of daily living (such as dressing, grooming, and bathing)
In most cases, respite care is provided on a short-term or temporary basis. However, respite visits can also be performed on a routine basis on a weekly, biweekly, or monthly schedule. Our flexible approach to care planning and scheduling is designed to make sure you and your loved one get the respite care services you need.
Getting Started with Respite Care
Simply contact your local office to request a care consultation. We provide families with a free, no obligation consultation before starting with home care. This allows us to better understand the kinds of services you need. We can also answer any questions you have about our approach to caregiving.
In some situations, respite caregiving is needed on short notice. In these cases, we also encourage you to contact your local agency. We can fast-track the care planning and scheduling process to ensure a caregiver is available for your loved one.
All care providers at your local Visiting Angels have been carefully screened and selected prior to placement, and we take measures to find the right caregiver for every care recipient. That’s true no matter what kind of care we’re providing, including short-term and temporary caregiving.
Alzheimer’s Care Services
Our Mission: To Improve the Quality of Life for Our Clients in Need of Dementia and Alzheimer’s Care
Despite modern advancements to what we know about Alzheimer’s, dementia, and the causes of age-related memory loss, these conditions remain some of the most imposing and frightening consequences of aging. Roughly 10% of people develop dementia in old age, with about two-thirds of those cases are attributed to Alzheimer’s. While a loved one’s diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or dementia can often be cause for despair, there are steps you can take to make these conditions more manageable. Visiting Angels Austin TX offers specialized Alzheimer’s services designed to make living with memory loss more manageable for seniors and their families.
One of the greatest benefits to in-home Alzheimers services is the comfort and security afforded by your loved one’s home environment. Memory problems often lead to confusion and anxiety, and the familiarity of home can be a great way to ease the stress caused by these issues. This is why Visiting Angels Austin TX’s foremost priority when delivering Alzheimers services is ensuring your loved one is healthy, supported, and comfortable enough to remain in the comfort of their living space for as long as possible.
Through our work with the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, caregivers with Visiting Angels Austin are offered training designed by the Dementia Care Professionals of America (DCPA). The DCPA’s training program is designed to give essential personal caregivers the highest quality training and education possible in Alzheimer’s and dementia care services. With the DCPA’s guidelines and training in place, Visiting Angels Austin’s caregivers are uniquely qualified to administer Alzheimer’s care services.
When designing a program for your loved one’s Alzheimers or dementia services, our caregivers will work closely with you, your loved one, and your family. Our programs are designed to maintain your loved one’s routine, keep them physically and mentally active, and to support them in their day to day life when their memory falters. Our programs typically combine physical, mental, and emotional care. Common Alzheimers services include meal preparation, medication reminders, dressing assistance, transportation to doctor’s offices, and walking assistance.
If one of your loved ones has recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia, call our Austin TX office for more information on our care plans. We would be happy to connect your family with one of our experienced and compassionate Alzheimer’s services providers.
