Respite Care Services in Cumberland, MD and the Surrounding Areas
Comfort Keepers of Cumberland, MD proudly provides respite care services for family caregivers that need to rest and recharge
Caregiving can be a rewarding and bonding experience within a family, yet in even the best situations, the responsibility and ongoing routine can be stressful and tiring—especially when balanced with a job or caring for children. When family caregivers are emotionally drained, they are likely less effective at playing this critical role. Comfort Keepers® can provide respite care services, or temporary relief, to those who care for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home.
What is Respite Care?
Known in some countries as “short break” care, respite services provide planned short-term breaks for families and other unpaid caregivers who need time outside the home or to simply take a rest. These services also help to support and maintain the primary caregiving relationship.
How Comfort Keepers Care Services Can Help
Respite care services give you time to leave the home for a few hours or even a few days, knowing the one you care for is in good hands. This creates time to
- take care of the errands you never seem to have time for
- catch up on your shopping
- attend a support group meeting
- visit doctor or dentist for routine care
- give yourself a much-needed rest
Comfort Keepers respite care services can be scheduled for as little as a few hours a week. Additionally, around-the-clock care can be arranged so you can take a longer break to attend a wedding out of town, take a child to college, or go on a much-needed vacation. If you are in need of a break and are interested in our services, contact us today or give us a call at (240) 242-5966. We have team members standing by 24/7.
