Respite Care in Plymouth, MN & Surrounding Areas
Rest, recharge, or focus on other important matters with respite care services from Comfort Keepers of Plymouth, MN
As a family caregiver for a senior loved one you should commend yourself for taking on this critical role in your family member’s life. Caregiving can be a rewarding experience and an opportunity to strengthen the bond within a family; however, in even the best situations, the responsibility and ongoing routine can become stressful and tiring—especially when balanced with a career or caring for children.
When family caregivers are fatigued or emotionally drained, they are simply less likely to provide the effective and attentive care their loved one deserves. Comfort Keepers of Plymouth, MN offers respite care, or temporary relief, to those who care for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a nursing home or senior living facility outside the home.
Not only will you benefit from time away from providing care, but also your senior loved one will have the opportunity to interact with our highly trained, compassionate caregivers and engage in meaningful conversation, games, light exercise, and other social activities based on their interests, personality, health and individual abilities.
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
