Respite Caregivers Step in When You Need Relief

Providing exceptional Respite Care at Home for seniors and families in Middleboro, Lakeville, North Dartmouth, Raynham, Rochester, Marion, Fairhaven, Berkley, Freetown, Assonet, & Acushnet in Massachusetts.

Being a caregiver is a big responsibility and it’s easy to become burnt out and feel emotionally depleted. You’re choosing to spend your time caring for your loved one but it’s important to occasionally take breaks to recharge. Respite care allows you to do just that. You can take a little time off from your caregiving duties while ensuring that your senior’s needs are still being met.

Many times, caring for a client involves family, so Cranberry Home Care can also play a role in providing “respite care” for the family caregiver (i.e., a wife caring for a husband or a daughter/son caring for her/his parents). Constant caregiving can bring considerable stress, because the caregiver’s focus is centered on the one needing care. Very often, we see that when we give relief with daily routines, allowing the family caregiver(s) more time for themselves, the relationship strengthens.

Cranberry Home Care Can Help Family Caregivers with Respite by Providing:

Qualified, caring, trained and flexible caregivers who can help you take a few hours, without feeling guilty or stressed, while you take care of yourself. Our caregivers can assist your loved one for a few hours a week, a few hours a day, or more. Giving yourself a little bit of time away may be just what the doctor ordered and will help you to be a much more effective family caregiver.

In-home assessments. We routinely perform in-home assessments that result in a customized care plan for your loved ones. You may choose to have us carry out the care plan in whole or in part, or you may simply choose to use the care plan to improve your own ability to care for your loved one.

Access to information and training for caregivers. We have access to (and offer) a wealth of information, training and resources for caregivers.

Home safety checks. We have extensive experience in the multi-faceted process of ensuring that your loved one’s home is safe, which is vital to maintaining independence for as long as possible.

Support and understanding. We can help you get connected with support groups and individuals in our area that can help YOU, as well as help you care for your loved one.

How Respite Care Works

At Cranberry Home Care, we let you tell us when you need assistance and we will customize a care plan to meet your needs.

If you just need a couple hours to yourself during the day, one of our short shift caregivers can help out for three hours or less. We also provide longer periods of assistance during both the daytime and evening hours.

Benefit From Our Trusted Respite Services

Caring for a senior parent or family member is stressful — according to the AARP, nearly half of all caregivers experience some stress. Respite care can provide the following benefits:

  • Prevent caregiver burnout: The stressful nature of being a caregiver can often cause resentments to build up which can affect your relationship with your loved one. Respite care gives you the time off you need so you can return refreshed and refocused.
  • Provide downtime: Everyone needs a little time away to relax and unwind. Respite care will give you a chance to get away, rest, and do the things you want to do.
  • Access to a trusted resource for support: What would you do if a sudden emergency came up? Respite care can provide a safety net so that you always have a trusted resource to contact for support if you need it.
