Respite care provides the unique opportunity for short term care of a loved one in a facility outside of the home to give temporary relief to the primary care giver. The care giver can choose respite care when in-home care is their primary choice but scheduling conflicts don’t allow for twenty four hour care. Essentially, Respite care provides the necessary breaks from in-home care giving without having to rely fully on a permanent placement outside of the home.
QHC understands that in-home care for loved ones is many people’s first choice. It helps to continue a sense of normalcy for both you and your loved one. Respite care is designed to be available based on your needs and can be utilized on a regular or irregular basis. If it’s an afternoon, a weekend, nights, or during work hours, we will work with your schedule to get the best care and attention for your loved one.
Respite care is available for people of any age who are dependent on others for care and have special needs. Whether your child is dependent on day-to-day care or an aging parent needs special attention, respite care is available for anyone in need. People who suffering from injuries, recovering from a surgery, or facing an illness can all benefit from respite care.
Respite care is tailored to your needs, but it can include meals, medication administration, supervision, personal hygiene assistance, activities, and outings. People have varying needs and levels of dependency when it comes to respite care. For these reasons, we will come up with a plan that best fits the needs of you and your loved one.
