The newly updated services endeavour to provide family caregivers the opportunity to spend some time away from their duties without compromising the quality of care that their loved ones receive.

As the agency points out, more than 40 million Americans are acting as family caregivers. These individuals are at high risk of experiencing physical and mental exhaustion without the break that respite care affords them.

In contrast to other types of homecare where professionals are responsible for performing the majority of caregiving duties, respite care serves as a suitable solution in cases where family caregivers are in charge of most of the work.

The service is intended to provide assistance with daily living activities like bathing, grooming, and dressing. Other common tasks typically covered include doing the laundry, performing some light housekeeping, preparing meals, and giving medication reminders.

Aside from standard personal and companion care, Visiting Angels Fredericksburg is also able to render specialized services for people suffering from conditions like Alzheimer’s and dementia. During instances like these, the respite visits are done by caregivers with the necessary expertise to handle the needs of the elderly.

While respite care is usually provided on a short-term or temporary basis, the caregiver services can also be enlisted on a routine basis, including weekly, biweekly, and monthly schedules. The agency employs a flexible approach to care planning to better ensure that the clients get the services they require.

Those who wish to get started on respite care are advised to request a care consultation with Visiting Angels Fredericksburg, Virginia. As their representative states, “We provide families with a free, no obligation consultation before starting with home care. This allows us to better understand the kinds of services you need. We can also answer any questions you have about our approach to caregiving.”
