What is Respite Care?
Caring for a family member is a big responsibility. Whether they’re elderly or disabled, you feel obliged to help them in all the ways they need it. However, as time goes on, you might start to feel burned out and overwhelmed. This is where we can help with respite care.
Our services are designed to allow you to take a break from your responsibilities as a primary family caregiver. You’ll have the chance to focus on yourself and your own life, while we ensure your loved one is safe, happy and comfortable.
We can care for them for a few hours, an entire day, overnight or on a long-term recurring basis, if needed. We’ll work with you to develop a schedule that’s a fit for your family.
With our respite care services, FirstLight Home Care of Columbia can help your loved one in many non-medical ways, including with:
- Mobility support and medication reminders
- Meal preparation and light housekeeping
- Assistance with bathing, grooming, and getting dressed
- Companionship, conversation and comfort
- Transportation to appointments or to run errands
