Rest and Relief Is Here

Caring for your parent, sibling, spouse or loved one is no small feat. You know this, and so do we. You’ve sacrificed to serve in your role as caregiver for the one you love, and that’s why you deserve time to rest and revive your spirits. Our caregivers offer that relief, allowing you to grab coffee with a friend, catch a movie with your spouse, or even take a much-needed nap. All the while, you can rest assured that your loved one is being cared for in the best of hands, allowing your mind, body and soul that small, essential vacation—even if it’s only a few hours each week.

Benefits of Respite Care

Caring for a loved one 24/7 can begin to wear on your physical and mental health. You may find yourself:

Sometimes, resentment can build, prompting the caregiver to take out frustrations on the patient. But this doesn’t have to be the case.

Our senior care services cater to the caregiver’s mental and physical well-being. And when the caregiver—you—is healthy, the patient remains healthy, too. Respite care will:

How Respite Care Works

Depending on your needs, as well as those of your loved one, a respite care worker will come to your home for a few hours. These visits could be once a week, or three times per week. While the respite care worker tends to your loved one, you’re free to get away. You can use these hours to meet friends for lunch, attend a hair appointment, or even read a book in the backyard. The point is, this is your time to rest and recover.

Cannot say enough wonderful things about Right at Home. Right at Home was originally hired just to help with medications for my 83-year-old father as he was alone in his home while his four daughters live in another state. As anyone that has an elderly loved one that lives out of state knows...it's hard to worry from afar. It was a great relief to know that Right at Home was checking on him and keeping in touch with us. The nurse was trustworthy, caring, kind and just fantastic in every way. Right at Home spent much time on the phone with us to help choose and get him into a rehab facility after he was sick last year, which I always felt was above and beyond. Just recently I was up visiting with my father because he had developed an infection. My dad refused to go to the hospital and the nurse from Right at Home stayed with us for an extra 4 hours or so until we could finally get the help my father desperately needed at the hospital. Again above and beyond. The Right at Home nurse was like an angel during this stressful time. Five stars is not enough to rate how much Right at Home helped us with our dad.
