and all of Montgomery County
Sometimes you just need a break to run an errand, visit friends, or just do something for yourself.
Often, the challenges of caring for an elderly, chronically ill, or disabled family member are simply a part of daily life. Many families take great joy in providing care to their loved ones so that they can remain at home. But the physical, emotional, and financial consequences for the family caregiver can be overwhelming without some support, such as respite. No one is equipped to do it alone.
Our Respite Care Services
Assisting Hands of Potomac’s respite care services provide short-term breaks that can relieve stress, restore energy, and promote balance in your life. Our compassionate in home care focuses on both the needs of the caregiver and of the affected family member. Our caregivers are skilled in helping family and friends with additional personal and homemaker services so that the caregiver can take a break or just spend quality time with their loved one.
Seeking support and maintaining your own health are key to managing your role as a caregiver. Using respite care before you become exhausted, isolated, or overwhelmed is ideal. But just anticipating regular relief can become a lifesaver. Call Assisting Hands of Potomac today, and we will help create a respite care plan that analyzes both yours and your loved one’s needs.
Our Needs Assessment includes:
- Assessing your needs for the type, skills, frequency, and location of respite service. As a caregiver, is support what you need most? Or is it some regular free time? Or maybe help with transportation? Or even a weekend away.
- Identifying your loved one’s requirements, abilities, and preferences. Are social activities primary? Do they require assistance with walking, eating or medications? Do they need mental stimulation? Or exercise?
- Assessing the amount of time you need to be away from your loved one. Do you need services that last a few hours, a few days or overnight?
If you would like to schedule an appointment to discuss your Respite Care needs, or to set up a free in-home evaluation with one of our nurses, call us today at 301.363.2580.
