Respite & Relief for Family Caregivers in Clarksville
Throughout the aging process, conditions often develop that make it difficult to leave a senior alone at home even for a short time. For instance, an aging loved one who is prone to wandering as the result of dementia or is unable to walk even the short distance to the restroom requires constant support and supervision. When family caregivers need time away for a few hours a day or a few days a week, the challenge is to find someone available and willing to help. Home Care Assistance of Clarksville, TN, provides flexible respite care that makes it easier for families to step away with confidence.
Hourly Caregivers Available When You Need Them Most
At Home Care Assistance Clarksville, our professional respite caregivers are available early mornings, late in the evening, throughout the work day, and even on weekends or holidays. They can remain with your loved one around the clock when you need a weekend away or visit on a regularly scheduled day each week so you can work, rest, or socialize and preserve your own identity. As needs change, the schedule can be easily adapted, and emergency coverage is always close at hand. This provides family members with the confidence they need to take breaks and makes aging in place safer as well.
Enhancing Quality of Life for Both Seniors & Family Members
Even when family caregivers are present in the home, providing daily support and meeting physical care needs can be physically taxing and emotionally challenging. This is true for many, including an elderly man caring for his wife or a daughter who has difficulty meeting her father’s hygiene and toileting needs. Respite care preserves both health and dignity for seniors. At Clarksville Home Care Assistance, our customized respite care plans meet a variety of needs and are based on your goals and needs. As your senior loved one’s care needs change, the care plan can be easily adapted to meet them.
Our respite caregivers can assist with a variety of tasks, including:
- Providing ambulation support when a spouse is too weak to assist
- Meeting a senior’s daily care and housekeeping needs while a family caregiver is recovering from an illness or injury
- Assisting with tasks family caregivers might be uncomfortable with such as toileting, dressing, and bathing
- Offering seniors companionship in the late evening or early morning hours to avoid disrupting the family’s sleep
