Respite Care For Supporting Both Seniors And Families In Vancouver, BC
It is only natural for adult children or close family members to wish to help their loved ones when they are no longer capable of completely taking care of themselves. Being able to support a loved one as they age is an incredibly rewarding experience that can bring you two even closer. Unfortunately, caregiving is far from easy and it can take its toll on your physical and mental well-being, particularly if you have a job to do or raise kids on top of looking after a loved one. This is where respite care can really help!
According to some estimates, as many as 44 million Americans provide care for an elderly relative. This means that there are millions of American seniors out there who depend on their families for assistance with daily routines as well as emotional support.
How we can help
If you are among these Americans who care for their elderly loved ones, it is important that you take good care of yourself, so that you could be the best possible caregiver for your aging family member. This is where Comfort Keepers’ respite care steps in.
This specially developed care plan, known as short-break care in some countries, helps caregivers by helping their loved ones whenever they need a break from caregiving.

- Enjoying some quality alone time
Respite care lets family care providers attend to other important matters with peace of mind that their loved ones are safe, comfortable, and well cared for by experienced professionals.
