Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
If you are a primary caregiver for a disabled loved one, a senior, or a family member suffering from a long-term illness, we are able to help you too. Being the primary caregiver for a loved one is a difficult task, and in many cases can result in the caregiver putting the needs of others ahead of the own physical, emotional and mental well-being. You may believe that you can “do it all”. Seeking help doesn’t mean you’re not up to the task. Being an in-home caregiver is a 24/7 job and at some point, everyone needs a break.
What is Respite Care?
Respite care provides full time caregivers, like you, temporary rest from caregiving. It gives you time to relax with friends or family, time to take care of errands such as shopping, exercising, going to the spa, getting a massage, a haircut, or treating yourself to a favorite activity. Most importantly, provides you with time to yourself. During your time off, we take care of your loved one, whether it’s just for few hours, the day, overnight, or for extended periods like vacations. Our specially trained and compassionate staff of in home caregivers in Overland Park will give your loved one the care and attention they need, while providing you with time to relax and re-energize.
