What Is Respite Care? Is It The Right Choice For My Situation?

Respite Care is temporary care provided in the home or in a facility for a person that is handicapped or recovering from illness, surgery or a fall. Respite Care is designed to provide relief to the primary caregiver.

Respite Care provides much needed relief for family members, often an overwhelmed spouse. Family members caring for a loved one often neglect their own health and well being.

Respite Care Services For Spouses And Caregivers

Caring for a loved one takes a lot of responsibility and is time consuming, at the same time it can be extremely rewarding. Being the sole caregiver for your loved one can be both emotionally and physically exhausting. There will be times that you are simply fatigued or overwhelmed. Sometimes it is necessary for you to take a break but at the same time you may feel guilty about leaving your loved one’s side.

The responsibilities of being a full time caregiver can be overwhelming, leaving you with no time left for yourself or other family members. This is when Horizon Nursing Services can step in and provide you with qualified caregivers to help give you that much needed break.

We offer Nursing Care, temporary Respite Care, and Alzheimer’s Support Services.

Taking Care of the Caregiver

Family members and friends may be able to help out while you run an errand, take a break or even go on vacation. However, just as the burden of care giving is often more than one person can handle, it can also be a difficult process for families to share. Depending on the type and intensity of care needed, your own health and well-being can be compromised by taking care of someone else. Respite care is a chance for you and the person you care for to take a break.

We at Horizon Nursing Services are committed to providing you with home health services wherever you are including your own home, retirement community, assisted living facility, hospital, rehabilitation facility or skilled nursing facility. We want to make this transition as smooth as possible for those involved. Our caring team of professionals is standing by to assist you 24 hours per day 7 days per week.
