In Home Respite Care for the Elderly in Santa Cruz

The stress of taking care of the elderly loved ones in your life can be overwhelming. Between medication reminders, hygiene, transportation, meal preparations, and so much more, the demands of keeping seniors in a safe and healthy environment never end.

Sometimes you just need a break from caretaking to focus on your own life, go on vacation, or to simply relax without worrying about your loved ones’ well-being.

Instead of having to take mom or dad to a strange, unfamiliar nursing home or care facility, they can stay in the comfort of their own home. Our senior care providers can come straight to their house to keep them company and take care of chores and errands.

Ready to put your worries behind you and hire a caretaker for a few hours or a few days? Rest assured that your loved ones will be in capable and caring hands with Pacific Angels Home Care’s senior respite care services.

Respite Care for Seniors and Families

What is Respite Care?

So just what is respite care and what does it mean?

Respite care is a short-term care plan for the elderly, disabled, or ill, that is put in place to relieve family members or other caretakers in a person’s life. As time goes on, families with caretaking responsibilities will start to feel the stress and instabilities in their lives.

This is where a respite service provider comes in: a caretaker can step in and help relieve some or all of those responsibilities for you, for however long, while ensuring that your loved ones have the best care they could ask for.

Just need a care specialist to come in and spend time with your loved one for a few hours? No problem! Our job is to help make senior living easier. Our caregivers are specially trained so that if your family member suffers from mental health issues such as dementia or Alzheimer’s, they will be in expert hands.

Let the professionals at Pacific Angels Home Care take that weight off your shoulders. With our home respite program, you can rest easy knowing your loved ones are being taken helped with the utmost care in the place they are most familiar with.
