Temporary or respite care services are the types of care that are usually given to senior citizens on a more part-time and temporary basis. This is especially beneficial for elderly people who require help only on occasion or if their primary caregiver or family member is unable to tend to them during a certain time period. Temporary or respite care is a great option for those elderly loved ones who don’t want to go into a nursing or old age home or don’t want to constantly be helped by others. Maybe they are particularly private or proud and aren’t interested in long-term, regularly scheduled care, or you just need some time off from providing care. We’ve got you covered.
This type of care also works very well as a testing measure, to see if the care provider you use is trustworthy, up to standard, and a good fit for your loved one, and to see how massively beneficial for either you or your elderly loved one they are. Hiring this type of help is also a great way to determine the level of care or help that your elderly citizen might need. For some people, this option is also easier on the wallet while still providing significant long or short term benefits.
Care without Discrimination
Temporary senior care, however, can be just that: temporary. If there are frequent falls or sprees of illnesses, it is more likely that something more personalized and long term, in terms of commitment and hours, would work better for you and your loved one.
Respite care is also provided to people in emergency situations when immediate help would make a visible difference in the well-being of the elderly person. This is usually the case in situations where the patient is dealing with cases such as cancer, dementia, Parkinson’s Alzheimer’s, diabetes or any of the long list of medical conditions. In some cases, insurance may cover this type of respite care. We’d suggest checking with your local insurance provider to determine if that is true in your case.
Who We Serve
Daily Living Assistance
These short term home care services can be a little different on a case by case basis and can see a varying degree of success. For example, temporary care would involve care only for a short period of time, while part-time care would not see around the clock help, but would however be more consistent and in many cases, allow the patient to get some personal space and also allow themselves to regain some more independence when not being helped by a home care aide.
Support care, on the other hand, is slightly different. This is when your family members or trusted caregivers enlist the help of a home care aide to help improve the efficiency of your care. This could be hit or miss and depends heavily on whether there’s a rapport between the aide help and the family. We here at Right Aid Home Care Agency, a Philadelphia home care agency, are committed to providing the best level of care than can be afforded to either you or your elderly loved one. A sense of compassion and understanding can help things immensely and our team is aware of that, incorporating these principles in their work on a daily basis. We strive to make our patients/customers happy and are always willing to lend a hand.
