Respite care services provide family caregivers in Owensboro, KY with relief & time to rest
Do you provide care for a senior loved one in the Owensboro, KY area? Caregiving can certainly be a rewarding experience, as well as an opportunity to strengthen bonds within a family; however, this is no easy task. In even the best situations, the responsibility and ongoing care needs can be stressful and tiring—especially while attempting to balance a career or caring for children.
When family caregivers are emotionally drained, they are likely less effective at playing this critical role. Comfort Keepers of Owensboro, KY can provide respite care, or temporary relief to those who care for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a senior living facility outside the home.
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
