Taking care of a loved one when they can no longer adequately care for themselves can be a very rewarding experience, but it can also be a physically, emotionally and financially challenging endeavor. Caregivers can easily become overwhelmed without some outside support. Respite care can help families and caregivers take a needed break and has been shown to support caregiver health and well being.
How Respite Care Helps
At Guiding Light Hospice, our respite programs provide short-term care for the elderly. Your loved one will be taken care of by our compassionate and friendly caregiving staff: assisting with dressing, bathing, and other personal care needs. This will allow you to run errands, go to work, take a vacation or take some time to rest and rejuvenate.
Paying for Respite Care
There are many ways to pay for respite care including private insurance or state and federal funding, like Medicaid waivers. If you are unsure of how to pay for respite care for your loved one, contact our office and we will help guide you through the process.
