Respite Care Provider in Cumberland, MD

A Comfort Keepers respite care provider can be there to give you a much-needed break when caring for your loved one in Cumberland, MD

No one can truly know how challenging being the family caregiver for an elderly loved one can be until they are already involved in doing so. Caring for an elderly loved one is an important undertaking, one that over the course of time is likely to become a full-time job.

The AARP asks if you know that:

  • Family caregivers spend over 41 hours caring for a loved one
  • Partners spend an average of 44.6 hours caring for their spouse or partner
  • Average time spent caring for a loved one approx. 24.4 hours

Our Respite Care Provider Is There for You

Caring for an elderly loved one comes with many challenges that can leave you feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. When this happens, it is important for you to understand that there is no shame in asking for a little help. As a family caregiver, you play an important role in providing for your loved one.

But even the best family caregiver needs a little rest from time to time. When you reach this point, you can count on a Comfort Keepers respite care provider to be there for you. Keep in mind, our caregivers are there to provide much-needed help, not to take over from you completely.

Outstanding Respite Care Providers

The goal of Comfort Keepers is to ensure we can offer our clients a superior respite care provider that has the skills and experience needed to be there for you and your loved one. To ensure your safety and that of your family and elderly loved one, each caregiver undergoes a full and complete background check.

A Difficult Conversation

When it comes to talking to your loved one about bringing in professional respite care provider to help out can be difficult. However, these tips may help you to break the ice and reach a successful conclusion:

  • Be sure you emphasize the fact that you are not going to abandon them and that you will continue being their primary family caregiver.
  • Make your questions as direct as possible
  • Focus your conversations on the many benefits for both you and your loved one
  • Choose the place and time to talk very carefully
  • Do your homework and be ready to offer a number of options and any potential senior respite care schedules
  • You must realize you aren't likely to succeed after the first conversation
  • Use questions designed to guide your loved one to the "right" conclusion
  • Be sure you listen to the concerns and points of view

Are You Worried About Bringing a Caregiver into Your Home?

If you are worried about bringing a professional caregiver into your home (or your loved one's), there is nothing to worry about. We know you are doing your best and have concerns about whether or not our respite care provider will provide the same level of loving care as you and if they will stick to the established routines.

To better understand the role of a respite care provider, we recommend you take advantage of our free in-home consultation with an experienced senior care advisor. While they are in your home, the advisor will answer any questions you might have. At the same time, the advisor will work with you and your loved one to develop a care plan that addresses your loved one's needs as well as yours.

Our goal is to provide both of you with the care needed to ensure your loved one can continue enjoying the ability to continue living independently in their own home or yours. Our respite care provider is also there to give you the time you need for self-care, including a little rest time so that you can continue providing quality care for your senior loved one.
