Anyone with hands-on responsibility for a frail elder needs a break occasionally, if not regularly. Respite care is an arrangement in which a substitute caregiver stands in for the family caregiver on a temporary or regular basis. We can provide care while your family takes its annual vacation, or when you have a “date night” or book club, for example.
Our caregivers provide friendly companionship while you are away to minimize any separation anxiety. As appropriate to each situation, we stimulate conversation, hobbies, light exercise, or other activities that will nourish your loved one’s spirit.
Pin Oak Caregivers has a roster of highly skilled caregivers that can give you time off with peace of mind. We are experienced at stepping in when families need time away. Usually, the elder bonds with the caregiver and begins to look forward to visits. We welcome the opportunity to help you, whether for a few hours, days or weeks.
