In-Home Respite Care:
Temporary care of a dependent elderly, ill, or handicapped person, providing relief for their usual caregivers.
These services typically include:
- Assisting the family members to enable individuals to stay at home
- Providing appropriate care and supervision to protect that person’s safety in the absence of a family member or usual caregiver
- Relieving family members or usual caregivers from the constantly demanding responsibility of providing care
- Attending to self-help needs and other activities that would ordinarily be performed by other family members or usual caregivers
Sleep Over Services:
Our Sleep Over Service is available in 12 hour shifts. We will provide a caregiver to spend the night at the client’s home. We offer two options for this service. The first option would be for the caregiver to spend the night and be permitted to sleep, but still be close enough to hear the client call out or ring for the caregiver’s assistance with getting to the bathroom, getting something to drink, or repositioning for comfort. The second option is for the caregiver to spend the night, but be required to stay awake during the whole 12 hour shift.
Should the client require medication during a shift, the caregiver can assist with opening pill bottles or containers and remind the client that it is time to take their medication.
