About Respite Care
Caring for a loved one with any sort of ongoing medical needs requires tireless work and attention, which can be exhausting for family members or caregivers. At Agility Health, we understand and offer respite care to provide short-term relief. We’re here to help pick up the slack whenever a family member or regular caregiver needs a much-needed break to ensure that patients receive the quality of care they deserve.
Our attentive respite caregivers will seamlessly maintain daily treatments. We will work with patients and primary caregivers to guarantee that every need is met. From medical to non-medical services, Agility Health’s in-home respite care will make sure to encompasses the personal care, home management, and psychosocial needs each client has grown accustomed to with their primary caregivers.
In-Home Respite Care That Lends a Helping Hand
Everyone needs a break now and then. If you’re a primary caregiver, you, understandably, need time to take care of yourself and ensure that your own needs are met in order to be best equipped to provide the care that your patient needs. We like to think of the classic, yet true, airplane metaphor. When an airplane is facing turbulence and oxygen masks drop down from the overhead compartments, you must put on your own mask before you can put on anyone else’s.
At Agility Health, our nurses and respite caregivers are more than happy to step in and provide temporary care services whenever primary caregivers need a break. We’ll collaborate with your regular caregiver to make sure pre-existing in-home care doesn’t miss a beat. That includes monitoring and following through on medication management and assisting with in-progress treatments and therapies. Our professional nurses and caregivers are trained to provide care for patients of any age or ailment.
Respite Care Services for Any Time Frame
To get seamless in-home respite care, it’s important to plan ahead whenever possible. Respite caregivers can be scheduled days, weeks, or months in advance to provide the patient with a supportive and stable caregiving team. That said, at Agility Health, we can accommodate any time frame that primary caregivers may need. Sometimes immediate personal crises may arise, such as housing complications or job loss, that may affect one's ability to properly care for a patient. We are happy to provide emergency and crisis respite care at a moment’s notice, whenever the issue arises.
In order to be as effective as possible, family caregivers must have regular amounts of break time. We encourage family caregivers not to delay their time away from caregiving. Agility Health respite care providers offer temporary relief for full-time caregivers and families while maintaining their client’s medical and everyday routines. Our compassionate and friendly respite caregivers are all thoroughly screened through extensive background checks, drug testing, and fingerprinting. They are also trained and supervised by a professional care manager to ensure all patients are receiving the proper care and assistance. Call Agility Health today for more information about our respite caregiving and in-home assistance.
