Respite Care Services Offer Relief for Family Caregivers
Take a Break from Your Role as Primary Caregiver with Respite Care Coverage in Metro Atlanta
Caring for a parent, sibling, spouse or loved one living at-home or in an assisted living facility is no small feat. You've sacrificed in your role as caregiver, and that's why you deserve time to rest and revive your spirits with respite care services from Health Force of Georgia.
What is Respite Care?
A Health Force of Georgia caregiver steps in for you providing the daily living tasks needed by an elder, adult or child – thereby allowing you to take a much-needed respite. Grab a cup of coffee with a friend, go shopping or just take a nap. All the while, you can rest assured that your loved one is being cared for in the best of hands, allowing your mind, body and soul to recharge without feeling guilty.
How Does Respite Care Work?
Following your instructions, a specially trained respite aid provides assistance for a few hours a day, or even a full week if that’s what you require. Visits can be set-up on a regular schedule or as-needed basis.
