Care for the Caregiver
Serving as a caregiver for a loved one is quite admirable, but it can be taxing – even caregivers need, and deserve, a break. Respite care provides just that. When you need a break, or must be away, a qualified caregiver can tend to the needs of your loved one in your place, providing high-quality care services and companionship. It is important that caregivers take the time to relax, recharge, and tend to their own personal and medical needs in order to continue to provide the care needed by their loved ones.
Many family caregivers feel they are unable to take a leave because they don’t have someone available to care for their loved one – respite care is a solution to those worries. With a qualified and compassionate caregiver serving in your place, you’ll have peace of mind that your loved one is safe and sound.
Scheduling Respite Care
Respite care services from Independent Life home care can be used as needed. We are happy to schedule a caregiver to assist your loved one when you need to be away for appointments, vacations, and other commitments, or when you find yourself in need of relief from the stresses that can mount as you serve as a caregiver.
Independent Life Home Care’s respite services are provided in the client’s home. When you must be away, your loved one can remain in their home, where they feel comfortable and safe. A caregiver will provide the physical and personal assistance required to ensure the health and safety of your loved one in your absence.
Emergency Respite Care

We offer emergency respite care services to tend to the changing needs of your family, so that you can deal with such situations while knowing your loved one is receiving the care they need and deserve.
