Respite Home Health Care

Our home health agency respite care in Miami and southern Florida offers a regular caregiver a much-needed break from in-home health care responsibilities.

If you are the regular caregiver for an elderly family member, feelings of stress or fatigue are common and natural for someone in your situation. You may find it difficult to care for your own needs, or the needs of a spouse or children. You need a “respite” (RESS-pit), a little break.

Because there are no days off from home health care, family members schedule respite care services in order to give a regular caregiver a break. Our caregivers arrive for a pre-scheduled amount of time, often a few hours a week, or even for an overnight or weekend.

Respite care also helps with a transition from hospital to home after a surgery or other medical procedure. Trust in our team to provide your loved one with the highest standard of care.

All our caregivers are trained to care for clients with Alzheimer’s and Related Dementias.

Caregiving takes a toll on your physical, mental, and emotional resources. Together we develop a plan that gives you the break you need.

We offer families in Miami and South Florida an opportunity to step away from regular caregiving responsibilities and trust their loved ones to our capable and compassionate home health aides and other caregivers.

We know that some family members may feel uneasy or believe they are selfish about their time away, but you can rely on our 30+ years of service in Miami and South Florida.

Taking time to care for yourself makes you a better caregiver, for both you and your loved one. You feel refreshed, you have more energy, and you can take care of your loved one for longer periods of time now that you’ve rested. Your loved one enjoys your renewed enthusiasm and personal relief from stress and long hours.
