Respite Care

When you need some time for yourself, Serene Home Nursing Agency is here to help you to get the break that you need.

What is respite care?


Millions of Americans provide unpaid assistance each year to their elderly family members, friends and neighbors, in order to help them remain in their own homes for as long as possible. Sometimes these caregivers need time off to relax or take care of other responsibilities. This is where Serene's respite care services can be helpful.


Respite care provides the family caregivers with the break they need, while ensuring that their elderly loved one is still receiving the attention that he or she needs.

Is Respite Care A Good Choice For My Loved One?


In-home care is popular for obvious reasons. The temporary caregiver comes to the regular care receiver’s home and gets to know the care receiver in his or her normal environment. The temporary respite caregiver learns the family routine, where medicines are stored etc. Furthermore, the care receiver is not inconvenienced by transportation and strange environments. They can remain in their own home where they are most comfortable.


How Often Can I Receive Respite Care?


Respite care is not all the same. Respite care can vary in time from part of a day to all-day services for several weeks in a row. Need a night out with the girls? This service is in place to give caregivers personal time for themselves while allowing them to have peace of mind that their loved one is being safely and confidently cared for. At Serene Home Nursing Agency, our care coordinators will work with you to create a schedule that works best for you and your family.

What type of Respite Services Are Available At Serene Home Nursing Agency?


Respite care includes planned routine care to support the needs of a child or an adult with emotional or behavioral disturbance with the family or long-term primary caretaker. This type of care can also be used on an emergency or crisis basis.


Respite services provide temporary care for children or adults with serious mental health needs who live at home. Access to this type of home care service gives families and caregivers a much needed break while offering a safe environment for their loved one.





How Can Respite Care Help My Family?


Respite care is the provision of short-term, temporary relief to those who are caring for family members, who may otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home.

Respite programs provide planned short-term and time-limited breaks for families and other unpaid care givers of children and adults in order to support and maintain the primary care giving relationship and well-being. Respite also provides a positive experience for the person receiving care.
